Lower Eagle Obstruction at Diamond S Bridge

Should have put this under this Topic rather than Boaters Forum (sorry).


This morning, we discovered a downed tree blocking the left hand side of the 5th bridge (access bridge to Diamond S Ranch). This is forcing all the water to the right, making it impassable. There is not enough room under the right hand side of the bridge to clear safely.

Also, there are trees in the river directly below Rodeo Rapid (river right) and below the following wave hole (river left).

Just wanted everyone to know. Stay safe out there!!!

Also noticed later in the day (about 3pm) that the huge boulder on river left before going under the bridge just before town (with the green trusses overhead) has shifted significantly.
