For those hard core paddlers, you can put in below the dam and paddle down to Bofinger Conservation Area since the dam releases water on weekends for recreational boaters. This section has some class three rapids when there is a water release but can be a very bony paddle during the week when the water release is much lower. The take out point would be
Bofinger N44º36.885 W071º13.326’
