Scouting begins tomorrow early afternoon. Who knows what's up in there, but a good flush might have cleaned it up.

Anyone interested?

I've heard it's a fun run, not super hard but dodgy due to wood and even level if the drain is that immediate.

We ran it yesterday at 560cfs. At that level there were 3 portages and a lot of scouting (the trees were pretty big). If you don't know the run, you should scout anything you can't see. The wood we paddled under yesterday, may need to be portaged at levels like today. I would imagine over 1000 cfs to be a bit pushy. Have fun, but be careful! Cheesegrater and the Gorge were the biggest rapids and both clean of wood that needed to be portaged as of yesterday (3/14). Cheesegrater does have a large tree in the river coming off river right that you want to avoid. I've also got some pictures of the wood on my facebook account under Kayaking 2017 if you are curious. We put in under the I-90 bridge in Preston and took out at Fall City.
