Take out: Cloverdale
Flow @ put in: 1200cfs
Flow @ take out: 1400cfs

We were unable to find suitable river access in hopland so we bushwacked out 14' raft on Dooley Creek which has a wonderful easy access point but was a horrible battle getting the big boat to the Russian
IK would be much easier if not fun. The river was very mellow up until Pieta/Squaw Rock. Squaw rock was 3 continuous big holes and was a blast to plow into each one in the big boat. The rapids were more or less continous until Cloverdale. We camped below squaw rock and despite the road noise had a nice night on the river, tri-tip and beers!

Warning: there are numerous places where willows are growing across the river, this made navigating them in the big boat very difficult. This would be a fantastic run and flow for IK.
