SBC Wood Report from 6-23-2015 Run

Quick wood report on SBC.

Tree strainer spans entire creek above the brain, requires portage.

One strainer spans entire creek, however, we went over it on creek right. Below the brain.

Two strainers covering 3/4 creek be very heads up. One had a tight line on the right.

Strainer below broken bridge rapid, right below class 3/4 water, maybe 1/8 mile downstream? Be VERY heads up, requires portage. Caught eddy on right, directly above strainer. This one is deadly on the left.

Thanks John, sounds like a lot of wood problems in there! I was looking at it from Walker Ranch last week (a little more water) and the level looked kind of nice.

Kevin, we definitely enjoyed the run. Flow was about 330 for us. 260 below dam. The good news is most of the bigger rapids, and two of the three big drops were all clean. Wood is mostly in the between stuff. One in our crew, cleaned up moist slot, and broken bridge, and there is no wood in either. Looks like it's starting to drop out, so I'm hoping to get on one last time, before it's gone, or requires gross release.
