October Hole

There is a large strainer (big tree branch), that is hard to see form O hole, but it very prominent when you paddle a ways down from it. It would be sketchy if you had to swim. It starts river left and makes its way to nearly the middle of the river. I haven't been up today, but it was there at about 7/8 last night.

It's nasty. We're going to try and cut it out today. No guarantees though.

It looks like a big part of the tree branch has either been removed or floated away. There IS still a strainer river left but not like it was yesterday. I still wouldn't want to swim into it, or float into it upside down, so be careful!
