There were four of us and we all seemed to have fun without any broken boats yesterday. Yes, we hit a few rocks, but that's the way I remember the run at comparable flows. It's something I only do once a year. Overall the stretch seemed to pool up more. The Shellys drop was tighter/deeper, the slot move was easier, and the dam slide not as tall without as many rocks at the bottom.

we ran shellys, to be fair, the run did have a lot of rocks before. I got mad last night after beating up my boat on a run that was not what i remembered.

I will wait for more water, we had about 250cfs

The flood widened the channel in most places and it has been pushed back encroaching closer than preflood in many places. I suspect there will be significant channeling over the next couple seasons as sand washes out and the rivers find a new equilibrium. While I wouldn't call Shellie's or Apple Valley classic it is a unique opportunity to see the damage done in the area.
