Driving from Boulder Crk. to Clear Crk. Sunday I was surprised how much water was in the No.Fk..The sections above Blackhawk looked like a wider cleaner version of Turkey Crk..Based soley or car scouting it looked like fairly continuous 4 with some wood and a low bridge or two did'nt see any major drops, but there may be some hidden from road view.
Below Blackhawk a little ways a pipe dumps a ton of water back in , below this looked like busy to continuous 3 was much wider than above and seemes pretty clean,again there are probably drops hidden where its difficult to see from a car,it mellows a little before the confluence.I know the lower is gambler piss ,but it's about as diluted as it gets right now.Anybody ever run this or scouted it carefully? Thanks for any feedback jay

was thinking about scouting at least the lower section as I Shredded from kermits to the narrows the other day and was surprised at the amount of flow coming in to C.C. propper!! I will post any findings here if I scout it !!

I think the water level will go this year banking on the flows I saw after 3 days of melt!!

Ran the bottom 3 miles at about 100cfs last spring. It was good easy IV with a creeky feel to it. There were a few good rapids, one or two wood portages and a couple good boofs where the beaver dams had broke through (maybe an 8'er and a 6'er). If Jace would ever get the film developed, we could get some pics up .

decent run. needs a good rain or some continuous hot days to melt the snow up high. not a destination type run, but fun if you are in the area. like derk said we ran about 3 miles up from the confluence down. lots of wood from some very active beavers, is that ok to say? a few very low foot bridges around some sort of county building.

yes yes i know, i have been procrastinating for a full year to get the pics developed. hopefully soon.
