This was my first time down there this year and I was blown away by the power of the high flows in one spot where an island was just gone. Not just a little gravel bar island but I'm talking full on real island with 100's of Cottonwoods and one of the sexiest trout runs on the whole river...gone. There were remnants scattered around the river for miles and miles.
Hint...don't take the left channel up from Twin Bridges. I could barely get by a big downed tree by walking the boat around it. A few more days and I'd been screwed and dragging the LB across some rocks.
