ran it today at low flows put in 12 takeout 4. I portaged 6 rapids due to low flows and overall crazyness! The horseshoe rapid you can see from the road has a log across the main drop I portaged on the right.

Do you know what the flow was when you ran it and what would you want the flow to be the next time you run it?

200cfs on the lower gauge. I would have liked to have double that. Probably less portages with more water. I talked to a kayaker who has done it with only one portage. The portages were tough for me in my 12' IK

The LOG in the main drop of "Horseshoe Bend" of Big Sulphur Creek has been there form when Lars Holbeck firs did the run. You can easukt see it from the road above. Looks like it could be a keeper but people have been running it for years and nobody has been caught.
