Low water Frog Rock Rapid video

Many paddlers have been asking about Frog Rock rapid at low water and how it looks. Here is some footage we took the other day to show you.

Wow !!! MAJOR change since the recovery operation. The main channel was CLEARLY the right channel a few weeks ago... That is night and day. Not a proponant of changing rapids, but of choices this was clearly the best one. So a big "at'a boy" to the crew in there from me.

I read on 9 news that no alteration was going to happen. If they did alter it, they did a good job because it looks totally natural, and hopefully will save lives.

Did they alter it? It looks the same to me. I've never understood the danger in this rapid though I've only ran it below 1k cfs. I've heard people say it pushes you river right but the left channel is always open and strait thru?

@400 or so I ran it, and could have bonked my way down the left in a kayak, but I am confident a raft could not stay in the water without the passengers getting out.

The left was obviously dredged and left a clean sluice which was non existent before. It looks like the same line that exists at 1K or higher.

Changing the rio to make it "safe" would open an agency to liability. Read between the lines...
