In conversation with the landowner, and the cattle rancher leasing the land, they will allow boaters to stop and scout the dam. Just do NOT spook the cattle, and do NOT stop for a lunch break, only stop long enough to scout and portage if needed. They were both very pleasant to talk with, so let us keep our best foot forward.
