The overall gradient of the Bryant is 5.8. The gradient
of a stream is the number of feet per mile that it drops. This number
gives an idea of the speed of travel on the water and is an indication
of difficulty. The lower stretches have less gradient and are thus less
difficult. The river above Bell Bridge on Hwy 95 has a gradient of 7.8,
so the upper river is faster. Floaters should inquire if the river above
Hodgson Mill is floatable without dragging in times of low water.
