Short class 3 creeking, good fun. A few ledgy drops, they'll only get you if your not paying attention. Creek boats are fun play boats are more fun if your into it.

1 strand of barbed wire across river a few minutes after you pass Helen's Store, easily avoidable.

Takeout is river left downstream of a bridge on CR 245 (I think thats the number). Put in is just upstream of Helen's store at a wide spot in the road.

I might run it tomorrow (Thursday) around noon if anyone's interested.

We ran it last night at 650 or so. It is a nice padded level. The holes behind the ObarO cabins have got some stick. I went in one about half way thru the ranch and really had to work to get out. Bring your pogies the water is chilly.

Also the wave below my house is in. When you see a set of stairs winding up the hillside on the left, the 2 adjacent waves are pretty sweet (level dependant).

Lemon is full, so they should be passing all the inflow now. Might be good for a couple weeks.

Are those logs behind Helen's store gone? It's been a few years since I have run it.

The Upper Florida is dropping now with the current cooldown after lotsa peaks and peaklets. I'm gonna guess there will be one last bump in the inflow (and releases) with the forecast highs in the 90s thru next Thursday.
