So Dennis at Three Rivers called a couple of guides over to talk to me before running Almont to North Bridge and they both discouraged it due to a low bridge hazard at the current levels. They said there was about 5' of clearance which would give me about 1' of freedom. They said this low bridge was also pretty choked up with downed willows and even a Walmart boat that wrapped around the center bridge pylon. What to do? Went to Lake Irwin as recommend by CYCLODD's post.
In terms of the river, the Three Rivers guys recommended North Bridge to McCabes. That's where we'll probably try to go Friday. Dennis was super helpful over at Three Rivers. Good guy.
