There is one downed tree just below the first bend, on river left that's blocking 2/3rds of the channel. It's easily passable on the right and should break up and or relocate during high water. Other than that it's pretty much business as usual. The takeout has eroded quite a bit more, as it is right now, the path is just wide enough for the average raft. I'll venture a guess that it'll become much worse after runoff.

Well, that depends...

Do you consider a big mud bog right where you need to park the trailer to unload the raft a problem?

If not, then no.

If yes, then you'd be better off with the rest of the skirts at pumphouse.

It was pretty good. The water gets a bit of color from spring creek on down, put on a big, black streamer and let it swing in front of the weirs. Quality over quantity is the name of the game right now.
