Let's Make a Deal - Left slot. 75' tree. The root ball sits atop the house rock forming the left channel, angling 30 degrees down to the left bank. In a Kayak, one could pass under if held tight to the right side of the slot, but it's a strainer to the left of the channel with plenty of branches. A raft would have a bad time in there.

When the flow kicks up to 4K+ (Next month?), if the tree does not clear, that's when the risk will be greatest. The middle slot is an ugly mash at high water, and the right slot is more challenging to make. The current pushes left. Don't go left!

There's also a sneaky piece that extends out 1/3 of the way into the channel in Mercury river right, 30 ft above the big bolder lege. About river level at 2400.
