Take Hwy 1 to Boston Bar, turn off here and follow the road down to the bridge across the Fraser River & stay on the main road for a few miles.
At Frances Lake. There's a turnout and putin just above the outlet of the lake. Alternately put-in just upstream of Frances lake in the short section of river between the 2 lakes.
There's a new gage on the Nahatlach!
If you do a trip please note the level on the gage report back so we can get levels dialed in.
Run Description [Season: ]
Great river with continuous rapids. The run starts out with Rosegarden rapids, which is a long (200+ yards) class 3-3+ that leads to Meatgrinder, a steep class 4 that has a huge hole at some levels. About 1/2 mile down is Headwall rapids which is 3-4 depending on levels. The rest of the run has has plenty of 3 and 3+ rapids. Class 4 at higher levels because it gets very continuous. A couple spots can collect wood, so keep your eyes downstream. Take out at Apocynum or continue down to the gorge if levels are right.
