Wood in Eagle Source

Be careful, there is a log that may have shifted about a mile into the run. It is in the continuous water downstream of the first railroad tunnel a hundred yards or so. The log spans most of river center and is difficult to avoid. I got caught in this yesterday, where my boat went under the log and I wrapped my upper torso above the log. Ended up having to swim under the log to get out! It's a good idea to take a look at this. I'll try to get back up there and fix the wood situation and find my paddle.

How was the run besides the drama. I was looking at my virgin run up there since it is finally running. Hope you find your paddle!

We ran the stream Saturday around noon and the wood was still there. Very bad position in the run out of the first rapid, which is very busy. If that wood is still there it could kill you. The only other wood was at the end of the run in some meadows - easy to hike around
