MJPowhound, what time are you planning to go? We might have a couple of us for late this afternoon meeting at the take-out at 4:30.
The old highway put-in, I believe is now a problem with the fish club. The best put-in is up the Rollins pass rd, about 3 miles at a little forest service spot. I can't remember the name, but it is well marked.
The take-out is about a mile below your location, a little pull off above the river. The old take-out again, I believe is now controlled by the fish club.
If you want to PM me with your number I will call you to discuss.
