Upper Yough Release - Friendsville,MD

Add to Personal Events

The water reaches the put-in about 2 hours after the release; the water at the put-in begins to fall about 1.25 hours after the release ends. Don't linger on late afternoon runs: the paddle out is long and flat . . . and that's with water! The end of the bubble reaches Lost and Found -- the last major rapid -- about 3 hours after the release ends; it reaches the take-out in Friendsville about an hour later. Don't fall behind the bubble.

Notes
Scheduled releases occur from late April to mid October. Deep Creek Hydro posts an online release calendar: Deep Creek Hydro's scheduled releases. Because the dam operators attempt to maintain the level of Deep Creek Lake within an upper and lower "operating rule band", unscheduled releases can occur after heavy rain and scheduled releases can be cancelled due to drought conditions. Call Deep Creek Hydro at 315-413-2823 or visit the daily Deep Creek Hydro release page at the Event Page link below for the latest release information.
