Put in at Mt. Pleasant rd. bridge to Hwy. 24/27 for a great fishing trip. Bass and sunfish are
aplenty. Uninhabited pretty much the whole trip. 4-5 hours at this level, 30 minutes from
Charlotte,Concord, and Albemarle. COUNTRY-MAN LIVERY PUT ME ON THE FISH!!! I have also heard rumors
about some lucky gold prospectors talking about this section of river.

Run this river at a minimum of 350 cfs from Hwy 24/27 to Hwy 200, any lower would be too much
scraping. From hwy 200 to the Pee Dee river only 250cfs would be ok. Lots of class I-II ledges in
this lower section, watch out for NO TRESSPASSING signs, they mean it.

This river is a hidden jewel of the piedmont! From Renee Ford Rd. to Hwy 200 at about 500cfs or
better, this is a rough estimate. Have seen it as high as 20,000cfs and it is a full on class III
run! No Kidding, 20 minutes from Charlotte, NC! If anybody can help with the access issues on this
beautiful river please do.
