Terry, it was just past the old teacher's retreat on what is now that new Mo St Park. It was shortly after the first sighting of the cell tower. When you see that, "heads up."

There's a largish old trunk coming down steeply from the left bank and a newer, smaller trunk laying almost horizontally from the right. (Leaves were still on it.) It looks like you could skirt the left trunk and maybe go left behind it, skimming over the top twigs of the smaller tree. Don't try it - its a "no go" but you won't see that till you're in it. Swimming under it, though, I encountered no submerged branches and the water was deep and smooth, though cool. I there offered up a pair of worn out work boots that were hanging on my thwart to the spirits of the Current river.

On the way home I stopped at Akers and told the folks there about it. I was the second person in an hour that had given them that info. They said they'd pass the word on to the DNR guy who checks in with them regularly. I bet they had a path cleared by the next day. It wouldn't have been a difficult one to remove. We could probably have done it with patience and a Sven saw if we'd been carrying one.
