On 9/21/19 at 360 cfs I noticed that there is a 1" diameter steel cable in Beginner's Luck rapid located just below the surface of the water. I could be a hazard for a swimmer and hopefully it can be somehow removed.

Sorry, picture taken at a flow of 385 cfs, not 360 cfs.

Hey All, We removed about 75" of that steel cable from "Beginners Luck" today as part of a River and Flood water Rescue Technician class through the Local Fire District. We got all that we could access at 140 cfs. There may still be some deep down, but the main part of the hazard is gone. Thanks
