North Fork of the Smith – January 2, 2011
Bearfoot Brad posted on Dreamflows that the NF Smith was at 10’6″. The graph below shows the gauge at Crescent City.
A group from Ashland met at 8:00 am. After picking other folks up and meeting Brad and Jamie for shuttles, we arrived at the put-in around noon. At 10’6″, the NF Smith moves along pretty well but lacks the stomping holes that come out in another foot or two. In total we had six kayaks and one raft. The sun came out and we enjoyed a great day on the river. Here are some photos:
