    Default willow

    Alright guys I put a jet boat in at the parks on the willow and cut the log jams out heading down to the Big Sue. I think we cut out four or five jams. there is still one I didn't cut about half way down because the is a clear back chanel behind a gravel bar that you can sneak through. It s river left as your coming down. I did run up under the bridge about four bends and came to a log jam.... I peaked up over it and could see more jams up river so I turned around headed back. that being said there is a lot if wood in the water. The big sue is flowing above and below the mouth of the willow. I also ran up the big sue to see that little willow wasn't flowing at all into the big sue and was completely iced over yet. I went to the deshka landing and water is flowing to the landing and then goes under the ice for a while farther than I could see . The deshka is open and flowing and expect the sue to push that ice down today or the next. Be safe and do your scouting this spring Because there is a ton of wood in the rivers and creeks.

    Also should note that our boat was 60" wide so they are cut wider than that but some not by much. Bring a saw!
