At 3800 they still run the big boats above vinegar. Not 100% sure below. It's pretty impressive and you better be dam sure you know where you are at, at all times.

I ran Carey at 4400 with the little 20 and made it. Vinegar was full of rocks and we waited for the water to come up. Lots of rocks in that bad boy.

From the pictures Vinegar looks to have a path while Carey Falls not so much of one?

I’m seeing the opposite. Some close ups from the other bank would be helpful.

Am reading this correctly? 1st pic Vinegar, 2nd Pic Carey Falls? Top to bottom.

Top one I would probably try. The bottom one I am not so sure. That looks boney even for my boat.

I should have known it was written in bottom to top instead of top to bottom :Drink: :Drink:

So in that case: From the pictures Carey Falls looks to have a path while Vinegar not so much of one? :Drink: :Drink: :chicken: :chicken:

They are both runnable at this flow! You just need to calculate the risk vs. the reward. Mark Murray told me he ran the Poly B boat through them at 3400. Carey falls is alot tighter than the pic indicates, yes you can see the line but if you don't slide over at the right time you will hit either the pour over rock in the middle or get sucked into the one at the top. If you look close enough I think you may be able to see some of my alluminum on the pour over :) 26' twin at 6000 I should have got out and scouted it and I would have been ok!
