River Description


When the creeks in Pisgah are high, the middle section of the West Fork of the Pigeon offers a great option for a western style read and run paddle. At flows around 3.6 to 3.8 on the stick gage just upstream from the takeout you can expect continuous Class III/III+ rolling wave trains and almost no eddies. Lots of fun surfing on the fly. Obviously it gets creekier at lower flows. 

Put in at the confluence of the Middle Prong and the West Fork, and take out at the unmarked big NC Wildlife Resources Commission parking lot a quarter mile or so below the metal bridge over the West Fork (which is where the gage is) and down a short gravel driveway. If you go too far downstream you'll end up with private property issues.
