Echoing that the portage is a simple one. Rapids didn't look navigable to me with the water level I had. Too deep to want to walk/line, and too shallow to paddle. The portage is a super-nothing anyway.

I was here in low water, but took this easy portage anyways.

Probably won't be a problem in lower water but, during flood stage, this flume was impossible to properly scout from the water, and the downed trees along the shoreline made it more of a chore than actually doing the portage. The trail is a short, simple up and over.
