Frank, Julie and I scouted and cleaned this section of river yesterday. There is low water in the river due to beaver dams at the upper pond. We were able to reach both ends of this section but had to get out and drag boats for a small section on the way back in the riffles due to low water. It is recommended to wear appropriate footwear and use a boat that you don't mind getting scratched up on the river rocks. We paddled over two beaver dams heading upstream but had to portage over the third beaver dam to get into pond to paddle. We will head down river first and may not have time to portage over third beaver dam upstream into pond.
