Further, the falls is not navigable except when flooding. So take out at Deselm Road

This is very dangerous because the canyon nature of the area leaves no room for error or recovery. Worse yet, it is near impossible to take out downstream by the river because it is running too fast. Instead, you will be thrust into dangerous conditions with the Devils Hole undertoe sucking like the Chicago Cubs. You stay in your raft and make for Warner Bridge, Thats where we took out. I will never do that again.

I canoed that stretch around the derby,(river level low 4s) a tough portage around the falls on slippery, steep rock but doable. Very fun, quick and tricky paddle. Took out easily on east side at mouth, if you aren't kissing the east bank you will end up in the river.

Devils hole is 1/2 mile above Rock creek not below.
