I'll help out but got a wedding today. I also broke the jeffe yesterday so would need a boat. Basically all the wood yesterday was before four falls. Is there a way to get a raft out of the river and to a car before four fallls? Also I need your number since I lost it when I dropped my phone into a bowl of soup. bergmp@yahoo.com

As of Saturday afternoon (15th) all clear. No wood portages required.

Lumber has not spread below four falls. It might not either. The two trees in class II water below dreamhouse and above 4 falls will probably jam it.

The two logs previously reported are not much of an issue anymore. The one below the steeps and above supermax disintegrated. The one formerly marked with a rope below deer creek but above mystery eddy has now moved downstream 50 feet. It's more visible now and it's generally parallel to the current. There's actually two logs there, both parallel to each other. One has a rootwad that will probably anchor it until higher flows. L or R is fine. Whoever marked this with their rope, thanks that was cool dude. It was kind of ugly. I found a pink toy snow shovel floating in an eddy, so I marked the upcoming wood by hanging the shovel off a branch. It's not a scout, just some "heads up" kitsch. Deepsouth, this class II riffle shall be named Pink Shovel from now on. Noted.

Other wood is the same as it's every been and is either visible or not too threatening.
Damn it feels good

He may be a lot of things, but a carpenter he is not. A lot of the lumber was 2 X 12's, some up to around 20 feet lengths. Dicey.
