Quick heads-up - there is a log on the right side of the lead in rapid to house rocks. This is the rapid immediately following a sharp left turn. The log was not visible from up stream (at 4k) so be alert. Stay left for the 2nd half of this rapid.

We didn't notice any logs in play this evening at around 2500, although I mostly stayed on the left side of the rapid.

We did two laps last Wednesday morning.

I did not see the log the first lap but did see it the second lap.

Very dangerous.

Thanks for posting these reports.

So - just to clarify a bit - if the sharp left turn itself is the "elbow" how far down the straight "arm" between this point and house rocks is the log?

I frequently take the river-right line just below the elbow. Is it right there, immediately below or is it one 50-100 yards downstream.

If the rapid is 100 hard long total, Id say the log is roughly 75 yards from the start of the rapid. There is large rock sticking out of the water and I believe the log is pinned on that rock.   Favor the left side on your next lap, take a look back upstream toward the end of the rapid and get your eyes on it.
