|Saw this posted on AW from a couple weeks ago for anyone paddling wolf creek to hangmans bridge.
"2 weeks ago, About 5.5-6 miles downstream from Wolf Creek (Unfortunately, I do not have an exact location) there is a river wide log in the river. It appears to be 10-12” in diameter and there are no branches above the water, I have no idea what’s below. At 1250 CFS we were able to get right over it but the boat (14’ raft) bottom did scrape the log. The flow is starting to drop and at lower flows this will be a river wide strainer.
