San Miguel Strainer Update
About 1/4 to 1/2 mile upriver from Caddis Flats the river splits into two channels. Recommend that boaters stay right while this high water allows. The left channel has at least one pretty bad strainer that's hard to avoid. This is the place where the river re-routed last year.
Also, there's a new strainer that came in just above Caddis Flats last night. You can see it from the highway right next to the access road to Caddis. Sounds like you need to make an effort to get far left to get around it. Recommend that you scout it when you shuttle.
The river is up and cranking, and continuing to get higher as the weather warms. As always with this river, new strainers show up with some frequency. Always be alert for new and unexpected hazards.
