Anyone heard a Logan wood report?

Post by wasatchbill on Mon 23 May 2011, 1:12 am

Has anyone paddled Red Banks, upper Logan, and/or Woodcamp recently? Curious if any bad wood has been seen on these runs, especially since the high flows.
Anyone up for an evening paddle on any of the above, perhaps Wednesday? I could get up there by about 6. Should be time for upper Logan + Woodcamp at these flows.

Thanks-
Bill

high quality, and at a good level
edit: I should say, at a high level, and the upper Logan will be solid class IV (according to WWotSR); I have not done it this high. Character is like the Ogden or BV, with less road traffic and a more remote feel, with spectacular cliffs you paddle past.

Woodcamp is a great class III to get a feel for the area. There is also a class II+ stretch (Bridger), and a IV+/V (Staircase). The town run will have a couple large retentive holes on it at this level, at the footbridge/dam, and V-wave.

I scouted it a few weeks ago and it didn't have any new wood that I noticed. Of course that doesn't mean much as that river is so narrow and brushy that it wouldn't take much wood to create a huge issue. A warning about redbanks though, there are two man made drops in there with rebar / angle iron that could really suck if you hit it. Aaron popped a nice hole in this boat and Brian was left with a nasty rebar dent in the bottom of his boat. Stay left of center on those and try to run between the obvious angle iron to miss the not so obvious rebar sticking up.

those rebar hits were at more like 300-400 cfs if I recall correctly, right Jeff? (also some rocky-bumpy issues below 450); the gauge is at 974 now, so it won't be bumpy at all.
I do know that the upper logan crux (Monolith rapid) is roadside @11.2 miles from the mouth, and about 75% of these runs are road scoutable. The upper Logan meanders that are not road scoutable are mostly class II, so I'd feel good about getting on these runs after a good bank scout (in other words, does anyone want to go? :-)

I would also like to get on Blacksmith fork before the flow drops.
