Has anyone been up thru Sawbill to Frost lately?

Looking for an idea on how the water levels are on the Frost River.

Pretty low. Tuscarora Outfitters is a great place to call for this info. When I spoke to them about 3 weeks ago they said they hadn't had anyone go through the frost river in a couple weeks. It's been a couple more weeks and it certainly hasn't rained much.

Are you going there soon? I'm not going for 2 weeks but am wondering the same (and hoping you're going now and will report back! HA!)

Had major rainfall Tuesday and Wednesday. Not sure how much the Frost will be affected but it definitely raised water levels in the areas I just traveled this week.

If people are warning you off the Frost because of water levels, the Louse River is a great alternative. It has the same great deep wilderness feel and yet has less water level issues.

Agreed. Did this route the first week of August. Water levels were low at some points but not bad. We did not see another person for 4 days.
