I used to guide over there. Small paddle boats. Chaos was the order of the day. Couple of places to challenge There is a low head dam you have to go over in one slot, the Waffle Wall rapid and lots of braided channels full of shrubberies. I wore a helmet for that reason alone. Take one wrong channel and you are in the trees.
Lots of fun, but I have never in my life seen so much shit floating down the river. Shoes, paddles, thwarts, a blow up doll, more shoes, a life jacket...
On the weekends the put ins and take outs can be a bit jammed up. And the squirrels in the campgrounds can be relentless. We put peanut butter on a paddle with the handle laid over a rock, step on it when they were on the wide end. We were launching them 60 to 70 feet high in the air. And all you squirrel lovers - we didn't hurt them, they would come back for more.
