|There is a log blocking 90% of the river in a Class II rapid about 100 yards upstream from Big Springs. It's located roughly a mile downstream from the Pine Tree Hollow put-in. After a long straightaway the river curves left and the log comes into view. It's right at river level at today's flow (1,060 cfs acc. to Dreamflows). You can't see Big Springs at this point so don't use that as a landmark -- you won't see Big Springs until shortly after you're past this log. Today there was a tight approx 6-foot wide opening on the far left, between the tip of the log and the left shore. (See photo.) Willows along the left shore complicate the situation. As flows drop, this opening will get narrower. I recommend you pull over on the left well above the log and scout.
