|May 13, 2023, two rafts and two kayaks. Ran Herst Castle section. 5 Major River wide log jams currently in river. First on is below a right bend. Catch Eddy on river right. To set up for R. Left portage. The rest are easily spotted. But at lower flows may be problematic. The biggest one is 3 logs deep. And creates a low head dam situation. Sneak portage on R. Left. Use extreme vigilance floating this section. CFS this day was around 1200 |

McCloud at put in 0.6 miles below Lower Falls to reservoir
Wood frequently seen in river.
(2.2 miles below put in) At 0.2 miles below Big Springs wood across most of the river. Easy to see. In hard shell kayak narrow sneak on right.
(2.4 miles below put in) At 0.4 miles after Big Springs wood across most of the river. Easy to see. In hard shell kayaks ran a fairly wide route on the river right.
It seemed closer to Big Springs than this. Miles are according to AllTrails (3.6 miles below put in) At 1.6 miles below Big Springs MAJOR hazard. Wood across the entire river. From river level it looks runnable on the left. However there is a second tree 10 feet down river. We portaged on the right. Two kayaks stuck in the river in this area.
At 0.2 miles below the bridge there is significant wood in the river. We ran it, but I'm not sure what line to take once the water level goes down.
