anyone run Wallowa/Grande Ronde this spring?

Has anyone been down the Wallowa/Grande Ronde this year? I am wondering about wood. I know in previous high water years there as been log jams on House Rock rapid. Any credible beta is appreciated, thanks!

It's been a couple weeks since I've been, no logs in "Red Rock" though there was a drift boat submerged RR just below it.

If in doubt always call Grant at the Minam Store, he will know current conditions:

We just got off from three days on the river yesterday... Minam to Troy, no issues.

Beautiful stretch of river!

Just got off. No wood or sunk drift boat that I could see at 8k. Though there is a mangled drift boat at the Minam store and the reminents of one probly 10 miles below red rock in the woods. The only wood was some branches near the take out at Troy making for some furious rowing but that's about it. That and about 1000 other people. Still, a wonderful trip and great fishing this year!
