FROM CLAIR BARNHART.....(this morning)..."We had several recent floats down the river in the last 2 weeks, and our river "spotter" reported last night the river levels have dropped by several feet. Flow is good, not strong, but good. Obstructions can develop virtually over night, but the most recent floaters reported no major obstructions other than the log jam encountered last fall which has diminished considerably. No portage was necessary for that one. All in all, things look good Saturday's float!"

My view of the river is limited but it seems to be about normal. I have not gone the full length of it but don't think jams will be too much of a problem.

Claire Barnhart would be the best person to contact though. clairebarnhart@yahoo.com.

Sorry I could not be more help. Let us know what you hear though.
