Blue River Strainer

Somebody put this big tree at the first split right after Hammer's Bridge put-in. It seems passable now, but flows should come up soon. Hopefully we can get it chopped up before it ends up in a bad spot. 199 CFS today when I took these pics.

Somebody put this tree there?

Pretty sure this was left over last summer.

It would be tough for somebody to strategically place it there, unless it was a god, or aliens

Yea, I learned from some colleagues that it showed up at the end of last season. I didn't close the Blue last year, so my bad.

I wasn't trying to troll you, but I did. Oops. Poor attempt at humor I suppose!

Wanted to get the rookies out there and cut it up yesterday, snow got us though. Hopefully we can get to it before it becomes a bigger problem.
