Data from Joe GreinerThis reach continues on the Yadkin River, taking out at a boat ramp on the W Kerr Scott Reservoir.
This stream can be run if the nearby Yadkin @ Patterson is running about 90 cfs or better. The last rapid is no slouch and is contains sieves and undercuts that may be concealed at runnable levels.
There is also a higher gradient section shortly upstream of the section described in the guidebook. I believe the gradient reaches 100 fpm here.
