I paddled this today as a continuation of the previous section, as my first white water experience. There were no issues with fishermen, we didn't see any at all today. There were a lot of low hanging branches but none of them crosses the whole river. There is a low bridge but even as a first time white water paddler I had no issue getting into the eadie before it, and enjoyed the seal launch of it ( with a big eddie just after the seal launch). There was a bit of barbed wire about 6 inches above the water at one point but this was off to the side in a very slow moving bit of water so this was no issue. The river was quite shallow at times.
