We launched on the 18th, a few squitos around, but no big deal.
Ran Joe Hutch at about 19K. Like Whip says, make a river left approach, take it down the tongue, then some big, somewhat confused waves and then pull away from the wall. Lots of huge smiles on all the boaters as we sat in the big eddy, river left, after the run.
A couple of boats in our group tried a, close to shore, right sneak. One guy got tossed and the other boater said it was not the best choice.
One more thing, there are two Joe Hutch rapids. The first is JH Creek which is no big deal. The second is JH Canyon and that is the big one. It was great fun. It was my son's first trip with his own raft and he ran it fine.
Sorry, I never got any pix.
