    Has anyone floated Willow yet this year? Just wondering about new hazards.

    Apparently 4 guys capsized, spent the night then got rescued the next day. Article in the paper.

    Doesn't mean there's any new particularly bad hazards, but usually there's wood needs cut out of the way a bit early in the year. Some tight spots through there.

    Don't take the threat of an upset too lightly, pack minimal but good gear, and you'll be fine. Never hurts to bring a small saw and some waders if you want to help clear a run a little. Every bit helps the next guy.

    I've been down twice from the highway to the mouth. The first time we tried going into the raft take out from the top of first slew, and we ended up portaging a lot of it. The second time we came out the second mouth and had no problems.
