River Description

An easier section than the stretch that goes through Pulaski. The river is usually quite wide with a cobble bottom, giving it a consistant Class 2-2+ with the occasional increase to an easy 3. You'll see less fisherman and houses up here which is nice for beginners and dealing with swimmers.

Expect the water to be chilly, the dam upstream releases from the bottom.
