River Description


After the put in there is a rocky rapid followed by miles of boogy water with some class 2 and flat water. After a bridge there is a Class 5 drop called Pa's Falls. From here the run returns to Class 2-3 until the ledges and slides at the takeout. The bottom gains flow from Round Lake Outlet which will hold water. This means the slides at the bottom will run longer than other things in the area.

Just ran Bog River Falls (8/24/13). It's like a playground! The Hudson was at 3.15 and we got a 1/4" of rain on Thursday (2 days ago). I would say that the falls couldn't be much lower and be worth it. We parked at the take-out and ran each section of the falls a couple of times each. Definitely a good, low stress place to practice creek moves.

Army Corps Study Threatens Lehigh River Boating

1/3/2020
Bob Nasdor

Paddlers on the Lehigh River below the Francis E. Walter Dam and Reservoir are concerned that a planned study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its partners, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection will lead to a reduction in whitewater boating opportunities on the Lehigh. The study will evaluate the feasibility of various alternatives to optimize project operation. Aside from the project's authorized primary missions of flood risk management and recreation, the study will also consider water supply and water quality, to identify possible improvements to the existing structure, infrastructure, and operations that will support current and future demands within the region. The Army Corps is holding a public meeting on January 9, 2020 at the Mountain Laurel Resort in White Haven, PA from 6-8 p.m. to explain the study and hear public comments. American Whitewater, Appalachian Mountain Club, and other organizations are expected to file comments with the Army Corps prior to the September 29th deadline in order to share our concerns about the study and potential impacts on boating, the outdoor recreation economy, and the Delaware RIver Basin. We encourage our members to attend the public meeting to voice their concerns.
