Local Experts Predict Upper Yough Releases
Although the drought eliminated the regular Friday and Monday whitewater releases on the Upper Yough, locals know that shorter releases are being made regularly to protect the river's trout fishery. These "fish releases" are almost as good as the regular whitewater releases!
To help out-of-town paddlers make plans, thirty-year Upper Yough outfitter Roger Zbel and Friendsville Town Councilman Jess Whittemore will predict the probability of "fish releases" on Thursday for the coming Friday and others in the future.
PARKING LOT UPDATE From Jess Whittemore, Friendsville Town Council: - Please stay off the field that will become the parking lot. The permit on Upper Yough Race Day was for one-time use. We are awaiting a permit to allow continuous use.
