Apparently there is wood in staircase, false slalom and slalom on the SF Payette.
Lots of wood in Otter Slide on the NF Payette. Might be some in Juicer and Crunch and every in between. I don't believe anything above Otters has been affected.
Scout everything if you are up there.
Good lord we just missed all that by a few days! Wonderful time on the Payettes this past weekend, although a WEAK showing by Colorado catboaters this year......Rich.....
I did very little North Forking as I am on the injured reserve, although I had a wonderful time as a passenger down the Lower 5. What a hoot! We even caught a bunch of surfs. It's nice to have awesome friends who are rockstar boaters
and will haul gear to Banks at the last minute.
