San Juan River: Clay Hills downriver

Has anybody paddled down to Fatt Falls recently?

Been looking at maps for long term planning of linking as many sections of the Colorado River system together in my life and was curious about beta.

What shape is the old Puite Farms waterfall in? From the satellite imagery on the account I have it looks like its still a ledge drop at low levels. Is this correct?

Anybody have photos of the terrain at the top of Fatt Falls?

My goal is to eventually sea kayak down to Fatt Falls, carry or lower it down near/at the falls and then continue on down Lake to one of the takeout marinas. Its the last major arm of the Colorado in Powell that I have not either walked or solo kayaked. Hoping to explore it sometime before late autumn of 2015, likely this autumn if possible.

Any first hand info (paddling, hiking or over flights) would be greatly appreciated.

I found Jack's report interesting.

Always thought about doing this trip also, but remains another of life's unaccomplished goals.
