Thnking about paddling Daisy or Upper East Creek

As a paddler from the North West I love waterfalls. I'm planning on getting more info on both, but does anyone have some helpful tips, suggestions, cautionary advice or beta?

Start with the Upper East. It's a pretty simple little creek (as long as you don't run Stoopid Falls). If you have trouble there, opt for the Slate instead of Daisy, as Daisy is a significant step up from the East in terms of difficulty and consequences. You may want to do the Slate in between anyway, as it's on the way and they're short runs--can easily hit all three in a day.
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied...learn to swim!
