Pinned Canoe Lower Blue

On Sunday some guys got their canoe pinned in the lower blue right above the first diversion dam. I talked to them at the put in and watched them go throght the first small rapids. Then we stopped and went hiking for a couple of hours, they passed. As we got to the end of the wall chute noticed the canoe wrapped around a big rock river right. Talked to some boaters at the take-out said they saw the guys and they are fine, but the canoe remains in the river.

The canoe is still in the river as far as I know. I would have tried to get it free, but I was with a begginer who couldn't eddie out very well. Was hoping to take a second run, but was it was too late. Probably heading down there on thurs if flows are good.

Canoe is still in the river, but easily seen and avoided.

It seems likely the owners aren't going to get it out.

Removal looks very difficult at current flow.

Pretty sorry of somebody to just leave their trash in there like that. If a rafter could get it to the take out, I'll get it to the landfill.

Is it aluminum? I bet I saw those guys pull in on Saturday as we were leaving, the dam security guard told them they were going the wrong way when they tried to go down the hill to the put in.

If it's aluminum just let the tweakers know where it's at and it'll be gone to the scrapers by morning.

It looked like a bright yellow plastic canoe when I boated by it Sunday afternoon. It poses no river hazard, but is really stuck. Best to wait a week or two when the river level drops to try to pry it off of its rock. I'm glad to know the paddlers are OK.
