Thanks for bringing that up. It's been a while since I've ran Shoshone, but was mostly focused on midstream. Makes sense with I70 there, but hadn't really noticed. Not a fan of blast rock, it's all I see coming out of needle. I'll take a look (this weekend hopefully
Where on the eagle? I've looked at spots while fishing (spring lows) and the bottom of edwards looks best to me but still not ideal. Upstream, too much down there with very few chances to get out. Don't get me wrong, I rock an IK and will swim whatever I paddle. But jumping in (and telling a rookie to) is whole nother ball of wax.
Guess I just answered my own question. Any recommendations on a swift water rescue course?
Wow, this shit is serious,
