Another wood alert! Crystal Narrows has 2 strainers.

Both strainers are right next to each other but in different channels around an isle. The island may be gone now it was 600 when we ran it, you have to portage I donít know how easy the portage wood be if the island was gone so keep an eye out.

The first big tree has been there for a couple years. Left channel is open, even if you go right you can wheelchair past tree on left, or float past at higher flows. The second one right past in the left channel looks like you could drive over it, albeit plenty of pungy sticks abound. Should be easy to get over as water rises.
These are well past the meat of the narrows in boogie water. Easy to avoid.
Thanks for the heads up
