|On the Farad to Crystal Peak section there is a strainer in the first rapid below stateline dam. The river takes a bend to the right and makes a sort of S-turn. At this flow, around 1200 or so, there is a vertical stick in the center that protrudes from the water. It is easily avoidable in a kayak by skirting to the left. |
Looks like it could impale a beer guzzling rafter on a K-Mart floatie.

|The log in Bus Stop rapid has rotated to a downstream angle and is a non-issue. Whether it was a miracle of physics or some motivated river folk, we may never know, but as long as it's out of the way it's coo wit me.
