Eagle River Strainer

A nearly river wide strainer exists in the last rapid of the "Edwards Mile". The downed tree can barely be skirted on far river right. This would be a tight squeeze for rafts. It is highly recommended that boaters avoid this section until the strainer is gone. I will update this post if the situation changes.

The picture is from along side the trail system at the Eagle River Preserve (former gravel pit) below the Edwards Access Rd Bridge.
