    Default Willow floatable?

    Heard the water levels were really low. Anyone have information on the Willow from the Parks to the Su? Taking kids, dog, wife...limited help with dragging the 16' cat in shallows. Looking to go either 5/31 or 6/1.

    Thanks for the help.

    I've floated from the parks bridge in a lot of different conditions it gets skinny when the river splits, we float in a 12 foot achillies, there used to be one spot you had to drag around but thats it and its only like 5 feet half on a gravel bar. Remeber if you take out at the campground you gotta carry the raft about 30 yards. No clue how the river has changed with the floats though
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Ran up it two days ago, from the bottom end. Went to bridge and back down. It was fine. Skinny water at the lower end, but not bad.

    Default Saturday 5-26

    Floated it Saturday and the water was high and muddy brown, visibility about 1'. It was moving at a good clip, and there were 3-4 sticky logjams but no dragging. No fish for us, either, but we lost a lot of flies and tippets and had some good fun.
