Looking for some info on the Bush or Dam run on the lower kern river.
Has anyone done this stretch? It looks like it is runnin at 2000cfs giver or take.
Is the run more difficult that the upper Kern powerhouse run?
The SF American?

Dear Kooky (If that really is your real name...)
The BLM/picto/1st day/dam/bush run is mostly class II with a bunch of strainers and drunk idiots along the side of the river. There are some fun class III's, cool canyons and fun play waves though, so if you like the powerhouse run, you'll like this run. All in all, it is a slight step up since swimming can be a bad experience with lots of trees and branches, and one rapid (comparible to Ewings in difficulty) is quite long.
