Information on Micro Cr.
Location: Crawford Co.; Put in and take out 1/10 mi. below Lee Cr.
put in (S2) at Hwy. 220 bridge. You can boat or walk down
to the creek which enters Lee on river right as Lee bends
sharply to the left.
Topo Quad(s): Rudy NE
Gradient: ??? fpm (it's very, very steep and short)
Length: 0.1 mi.
Gauge: Lee Cr. should be flooded (> 12 ft.) This one can only be
boated immediately after extremely heavy rainfall.
Hazards: several trees standing in the creek and very tight, bony
Description: If you are lucky enough to catch Lee Cr. an hour or
less after a big rain, you may want to look at this
tiny creek with no name. The entire run consists of two
drops. The first is a 6-7 ft. class III+ with a narrow
margin for error and a very shallow landing. After a short
lesson in tree dodging the second drop of about 5 ft. is
encountered. The creek never gets more than 10 ft. wide, so
maneuvering and/or eddy catching is a joke. This is a good
side trip during a run on a very flooded Lee Cr. Just make
sure you are ready to pay the price in lost skin if you screw
up on this one!
