Big Woody on Daisy - Changes
 
I was called just now by a CB friend and asked to post this alert.

Big Woody Falls on Daisy Creek is similar to how its always been, but DIFFERENT. The wood at the bottom of the falls is gone, which has dropped and shifted the pool.

We used to run right of center. Yesterday that resulted in a painful injury to a local paddler. The riv. right shelf protrudes much farther out than it did when the pool was higher.

The line we are now running is LEFT OF CENTER off the falls.

If you haven't been up there in a while and are going to run it this weekend, please have a look for yourself before putting on the creek.

A PSA from CB.
