Attaboy, Hans!!  When it comes to all the clausterphobic water trails, PADDLES are where it's at!!
 
"Wood Free"? On the Oly P? I'm thinkin you've got some unrealistic expectations, based on my own limited experience over yonder!
 
The S. Frk Skokomish fits that description, though, if you haven't done it yet.

Thanks to Hoover, Jefferson was clean last weekend! Although there are still a couple of moves pretty close to wood.

Washington Dept. of Ecology has a cfs gauge on the Dosewallips: https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/wrx/wrx/flows/station.asp?sta=16D070  I think around 200 or 250 is a roughly minimum for a kayak.

Jeff-

What is the flow range for the Big Quilcene? It has been a a while since I've been in there, can't remember what it was. Any word on wood?
Thanks, Darren
