Does anyone have experience with the Paw Paw Bends, a section of the North Branch or at least north/west end of the Potomac River? I am considering paddling the area in a pair of small inflatables with a friend. Some kayakers seem to think the rafts will be shredded, but I didn't name the section and they may be thinking of a broader area. Pictures I have found and one write up makes that section of river look peaceful and "family friendly." We are looking around Memorial Day weekend for timing and have ordered wetsuits in case the water is still very cold.

Input will be appreciated!
