Weber Taggert to Morgan Fairgrounds

Post by Displaced in the Desert on Tue 04 Sep 2012, 1:23 pm

Big tree across the river, must be portaged and the portage is not very good.

There is a new tree down and it completely blocks the river with strainers above and below the water line at 3'/300CFS. It is a big cottonwood and is located below the last campsite on the golf course. Your still along the course, but below the camping spots.

Exit on river right, up the hill, around the still living part of the tree and back in just before the fence. There is a big rock there, right on the river bank. Puting in on the upstream side of the rock is best. There are a couple of small rocks to stand on and get back in your boat. If you step down stream of the rock it is really deep.



It may look like you can sneak under on river right, but you can't, there are strainer branches, so portage is a must.

We were at 275 CFS and about 2.70 on the Echo guage. It may be runnable at 3.5 or above in the middle where the tree trunk has a bend in it, but I would portage to be safe.

Any idea if the tree has been cleaned up, or is it still there?

I don't know. Best bet would be to contact that tube place that has their base right along the river in Morgan. They would be the ones to clean it up, if anyone as they sometimes have people float all the way back to their base.

The tree is still there.  One can paddle over the trunk on right, about 15 feet from bank at flows this past Saturday - about 430 CFS.  If river was much lower one woud need to portage.  It is a big tree.
