I'm referring to the wide flat section of river after yarmony rapid, at low water there is basically no current and usually a nice stiff upstream wind will try to blow you the wrong direction. IMO it's a challenge rowing out at low water unless you have help, I usually have people in the front help me paddle it or swap out the rower occasionally, or take out at Radium if you're not camping on the river

Jensjustduckie: Is Pumphouse to Statebridge a good two day float or is it kinda short? Is it better to go to Bond? Thx

Pumphouse to Statebridge is a good two day float. Especially at low flows! Enjoy the week end!

A great float from pumphouse on down true, but for my money (and more importantly time) I like the state bridge to two bridges section best. Start at radium, float just past state and camp river left by any of the big pines - three or four great spots. Less people and better river.

Two Bridges is a new take out, as of last year. It's the first take out you come to after State Bridge.

Yes (rawmilk) Two Bridges is between Bond and McCoy. approx 5 miles downstream from statebridge.

Road comes up quick on ya (from state bridge it is on the left, just after a horse corral) poorly marked gravel road, but you'll see the parking and bathrooms AFTER you blow by it.
extremely easy bike shuttle.
