pineview log & mad dog log

Early season wood on the poudre fun fun

There's 2 logs at the top boaters right half of Mad Dog on Filter on the Poudre. Pretty much at water level now, hopefully will flush out, but could be a surprise if you boat it now.

An uglier one is a 3-4" diameter log in Pineview Falls on the Disney line. It looks like it might be either wedged against the main rock or in the boulders at the bottom. It's about half way down and pointed upstream about 2' out of the water right now. It's not even vibrating so we aren't sure how well it might float out on it's own. Not sure how easy it'd be to remove.

Otherwise nice day for a paddle.

John

It appears one of the 2 logs on Mad Dog may have been flushed out with the extra flows, but I think there's still one there.

I'm not sure whether I'd call Disney greatly improved. We did get a rope around the log and were able to get it to move w/o much trouble, but kept slipping. I think 3-4 wraps may have helped. Anyways, the bad news is it did not come completely out. The possibly good news is I believe it is pressed against the rock wall of (river left) of Disney, below the lip and located just above the last drop.

By edging out to the edge of the rock overlooking that spot, I could see the log but I could not move it with my paddle (not that I tried too hard). Likely stable for now, but bears watching as water moves. I'd have been much happier if it came out completely. If it drops down a good chunk it might be possible to get it out.

posted on the rock report thread, but I have time and would be willing to work on this if anyone else wants to get it out

We tried yesterday for the log at pine veiw, no luck. My fried was cretain we could have gotten it, i was afraid we might lose the rope. This one is over my head in terms of a safe removal, could not help.

a side note, did not see wood at mad dog. we ran FP after trying for the log. FP is good to go.

We ran pineview yesterday and that log at Disney has shifted more. It is at the bottom in the hole and partly pointing up stream. looks like a big hazard the way it shifted.

So who wants to head up there with me tomorrow to get that log out? We gotta get it out before the water comes up--considering how many commercial rafters swim that rapid , let's get that sucka outta there.

I'm free all day tomorrow, but would rather do it earlier so I can boat somewhere. Who's in? Less talk, more action.
