River Description

From Allen Vaughan:

Little Fishing Creek is tributary of the Tar River and begins near Oxford in Granville County NC.
It winds through rolling hills and rural farmland. The run consists mostly of a very narrow fast moving creek through tight bends and a class 2 located just below the Granville County 1643 (Eaton Road bridge). Beware of strainers. The last of the run is done on The Tar River. See also reach # 1131, Tar River NC, NC Route 96 to 1203.

Shuttle directions: Take NC route 96 south from Little Fishing Creek to the first paved road on the left and turn left onto Granville County 1643 (Eaton Rd.).
Go to the stop sign and turn right onto Granville County 1622 (Cannady Mill Rd.). The next bridge is the take out.
