Despite the large amount of rain, the river is still very manageable, like most of the Grand. Slight rapids at Pietreville Hwy with some cross waves. There's a river gauging station here too, and readouts are available online at noaa.org.
Further downstream is Bunker Road Landing, a good spot to take out usually (or put in - more parking etc). Its a free county park, but filled with tons of mosquitoes. Just past Bunker Road Landing ran into one obstacle, where trees had almost blocked the river, and required a fair amount of maneuvering. Past that, the river crosses under a small foot bridge at Dusty's Inn. I think this could be quite dangerous if the water had been higher, as there was only about 2 and a half feet of clearance.
I took out at Macnamara Landing, just past Columbia Road. It is part of the county park system as well, and is free. This is also a great place to put in at, and doesn't have the mosquitoes found upstream. Overall, a smooth, easy trip with the two exceptions mentioned.
