Put in at Evans Bridge. Water levels were down at least 8-12 inches. Last time (3 weeks ago) I went from Hawkins to Godfrey it was low and we had to walk/drag the kayaks for quite awhile. Our dog literally ran down the river for most of that trip.Today there were many exposed sand bars on most of the turns and as a plus I did not see much garbage/debris. There were more people on the river today then last time. I wanted to get an idea of water levels before I drove down there from Forked River so I checked the water station at Jenkins. It just said the level was lower than normal. I was not aware of the average flow rates or heights for the river so the information did not really help me. There was no notifications on Micks site either. Many of the people with rented canoes were complaining about the trip and saying "This river sucks!"
