Nooksac weekend 7/22 Or 7/29
Author Last Post
I'm in.
I would drive up from Olympia in the afternoon, so unlikely I could make a run on Friday. I'm up for running it Saturday & Sunday.
 
I'm interested for a Saturday, BUT this class II-III has a wood issue

Ran this section 4/22 at ~640cfs. In the canyon, just below "slide rapid", there is a large boulder
in the middle that makes you go left or right. Right side has a log suspended above the water ~1.5'
(far right) to 2.5' (left side next to boulder). We were able to go under the log by huggin the
boulder laying on back deck but was tight. Higher flows would likely prohibit this move. Left side
had a log/branch just submerged and looked potentially sticky. At higher flows this may be a
non-issue. We were able to boat scout this entire upper section by eddie hopping our way down.
Below the glacier creek confluence on a large sweeping right bend there is a river wide jam. Easy
enough to portage right side, but if you have a swimmer would be a very big issue. Variety of wood
on banks that could be potential issues in future.
