Fishhook creek in hatcher pass

Fishhook creek is a cool little stream to run if the su is running too big. The top and bottom are fun Iz dont know anything about the middle except that it looks very stony, . Top put in. Hike downhill from the fishhook parking lot at base of marmot mountain put in below the confluence near the beaver dam and take out when you feel uncomfortable. Bottom section. Hike up the sixteen mile trail as far as you feel comfortable and float to the confluence with the su. Both sections are plenty fun and require alot of water on the little su gauge to run. Both sections I did are fairly short.

be careful on the creek... that section towards the bottom has several 5-20 ft. falls that mainly land on rocks.
