Heads Up! Bailey Boaters

Hey All,

There is a new river wide log in grand finale right side. Mystery eddie is the line of choice. I had the pleasure of meeting the bottom side of that log today as that I did not see it until it almost hit me in the face. Its really not that interesting. The hole below is very interesting especially sans paddle.

No the one shortly after DEER CREEK was boatable over the middle at this level. This is new wood in the last significant drop on the run.

Hey Kent -

What did you think the level was? Glad you are okay.

Here is more information as well: https://www.mountainbuzz.com/forums/f...ood-24811.html

The Bailey gauge was reading 300 by the time Kent & I finished yesterday. Of course, that's not counting the feeder creek above dreamhouse or Deer Creek, so I wouldn't be amazed if it was around 360ish by the time we got to Mystery Eddy / Grand Finale. If someone finds himself or herself going right instead of left, and the water is high enough, you want to boof the log pretty close to the boulder. It worked for me anyway as that was about as far left as I could get by the time I saw Kent hitting the log.

Out for this weekend. Had a family death and I'm currently in Oklahoma. Everybody have a good weekend and be safe out there. I'd be into some SSV tomorrow if anyone has time off and its not too big.

log is gone

We extracted the log today (actually a 20' piece of milled lumber). It took multiple Z drag attempts from different angles but the rapid is now clean. The lumber floated downstream a ways and self pinned underwater (about 2' deep at 300 cfs). Fyi, the gauge reading of 300 felt accurate today.

Hey Kent, sorry to hear man.
Tomorrow would work great for me on SSV, I have to drop some friends off at DIA at around 1:00 and could just head up toward Lyons after that, let me know if that would work for you
