Totten, Fish and I got a lap this spring that had the water right up to the top of the grafitti on the R Right wall. Looking at your picture, it looks close to the level we had. I'm sure it has been run higher though becuase the drops could definitly have taken more water

Agreed, I think it can handle a lot more flow, but when does it get that high?  Spring time rain on snow?

We ran FITW yesterday and there is new wood in Island drop, center slot. You can go right no worries. The rest of the run was in good shape, and the road only has about 6-8 inches of snow on it.

Fish, Pat came into the bar tonight and was extra stoked on FITW. He's been paddling with me a bunch in Leavenworth. Kid is a charger!! Glad you guys had some good runs.

Does Fisherman's ever start to flush at those super-high levels, or does it just keep getting more and more retentive?

Does the wood span all the channels on the left side or could you still go far left?

Yeah T-Pot Pat did great in there!

JayB- Fishermans is actually an easier move with more water, the notch on the ledge covers up making it easier to get durther right. The wood blocks the left and center slot in Island, but will likely flush next high water event. Right side is good to go!
