Florida River is running

They just started releasing the dam 2 days ago, got up to 600+ yesterday and this morning and rumor has it they're releasing even more today.
6 miles or so of non-stop III+/IV- (at this level anyway) with a couple of downed trees, one that can be skirted against the river left shore and 2 that you can go under. Also one piece of barbwire to watch for above head level at 600, but probably eye level if it gets up too much higher. Watch out for low bridges and be ready to portage at least one if the flows go up.
If you're near D-town, this run is definitely worth hitting as it RARELY ever runs and is extremely rare that it gets this big. The release will probably only last a couple days more so GO GET SUM!

Floaty22 just talked to the dam control officer....they're ramping it up to around 800 this morning and then shutting it off completely this afternoon, so go get it while you can!
