CAUTION – Unresolved Kings Grant Issues! It seems like every landowner on the Jackson below the dam is arguing for a claim of ownership. Until this is all sorted out, I strongly recommend you avoid that section of the river. Fish in Hidden Valley only.
I did not spend much time here – just a quick check on conditions and access
