Tried to add this as a river alert but it wasn't working for some reason. Will try again later - but for now I'll just post this here.

As of 5/10/18 the NF is closed for business until the next flood cycle. Trees felled by (fire?) crews along the bank plus natural wood have combined to create dozens of channel spanning blockages that will persist until the next dramatic high water event.

Thanks for the update, Jay. River alerts still don't seem to be working, but I added a note onto the river page for this section.

Sounds like part of what I was seeing may have been the result of habitat restoration work.

If it was a habitat restoration crew that did some of the cutting, there are a couple of ironic aspects to the "restoration" that took place.

The first is that anyone even remotely familiar with the river, or at least the part that we kayak, would know that natural processes are constantly depositing significant amount wood in the channel.

The second is that some nimrod dropped a 28-32" diameter pine across the channel that's hovering about two feet over the river. I suppose that'd cast a bit of a shadow, but how that'd do anything to constructively modify the habitat is a bit of a puzzle.

*It could be that that particular tree was felled by some random moron, which would make more solve the "how is creating a tree-bridge supposed to help the habitat" conundrum...
