Mandatory 350′ portage; Dangerous take out! No warning rope/floats! Take-out very close to sill of dam.
Discussions are underway (2014) for the removal of this dam. If dam removal proceeds, the situation will at this site will change dramatically.
The portage is well marked, but paddling past this point is very dangerous. If your trip ends at Lyons then take out at Tabor Street Boat Ramp – Lyons is highly recommended.
The portage trail may be difficult to manage due to the narrow walkway.
The portage trail is next to the Fish ladder.
The is a wooden staircase down to the river on the downstream side of the dam.
If continuing, the put-in upstream of Bridge Street bridge is rocky.
The Put-in downstream of Bridge St is gravel.
