    Anyone have any idea how fast the Su flows? Was going to launch as Deshka today and run down to Su Station, wouldnt want to get caught in that. CN

    Yeah, did a round trip from Alexander to Deshka Landing and back yesterday. Lots of debris and some ice. There is a huge ice jam up by Curry right now and they are saying when it breaks we will get a significant rise in water. We are already pretty high down here. Water was raising almost an inch and hour last night!

    The lower Su is running near bank full and is mostly clear of debris. Some foam is flowing and I'm sure the high water will lift some junk off the sandbars but there isn't anything unusual that I could see from the air.
