Skykomish River 8,000+c.f.s.:
   N.F. (Index River House) - Confluence:
          Significant changes in the N.F. and should be treated as a new run. Didn't notice any new unavoidable hazards but will possibly change at lower flows. 
   Confluence - Split Rock:
           A few changes that will be more apparent at low flow. First rapid after the confluence had a flushy sneaker hole at the bottom middle which took us by surprise. Keep your eyes open to surf as it drops... Many changes in between but all the regular lines were good and didn't notice any changes in Boulder. This was at 8,000+ so I would treat the whole run w/ caution especially as it drop throughout the weekend.

    Clean and no noticeable changes.

Highway 2:
     They were allowing us to go around the road closed signs after Skykomish but was closed just after Foss River Road.
    Happy Paddling!
