On this date, there was barely a current with pleasant breezes that rippled the water and made it necessary to paddle and rudder steer to get past many downed trees and snags. The shore was mud that sloped up gradually on all sides with a band of grasses and treeline above.
There were few places to get out of the boat without feet wet. Saw fish jumping, a beaver and small wildlife. No mosquitoes. Muddy water. Heard some jets from nearby KC airport and a few cars at the end. Otherwise the trip was relaxing and scenic.
The shortness of this route would make for some good canoe racing.
