I'll keep an eye for the paddles as well.
We ran it at 360 cfs, wouldn't advise it at much lower due to potential boat abuse! The first rapid has big fat log jammed in the right hand side as you go left under the bridge, but easily avoided by paddliing left, be aware of many little sleeper fu rocks; you'll know when it's coming when you see the run off/waterfall on the right.
The second drop is totally clear of wood. I highly advise scouting this rapid, river right has an eddy big enough for 3 or 4.
#3 rapid clear of wood, but watch out for pin rock middle of the rapid before the left slot, very deceiving! When they say go as far left as possible, ride the willows. Actually at this level, the right line looked doable.
then just before take out there is a river wide log easily portagable by eddying out river left in the beaver ponds. Good luck, have fun! Find my paddle and there is either beer or homemade food products in it for ya, you can decide...
