Did you look at the little canyon where the EF goes away from the Elwood Pass road, basically right below the first campground you come to and right above the confluence? This area has a couple islands and tends to collect wood. Water was pretty high last week, so I hesitate to drive down and run this stretch without a report from someone...
The area between the bridges is the site of a major landslide a few years ago. It turned the class IV rapid into a class V with wood...
