Report:    Low water a factor, but we still made good time in spite of slack current -- and we weren't in any particular hurry! Most avoided getting hung up throughout the day. Lunch at Pioneer Park. Pretty good bird sightings including a bald eagle and double herons. Fun paddle - little challenges all day finding the deeper channels through the many riffles that mark this reach.
