I was in that party and would like to say that I told several people, I apologize that not everyone in the boating community heard the news. When one puts on a river beta is a wonderful tool, however we don't always have all the information which is why we make our own decisions to run drops based on our view of a rapid.

The NY guide books suggests that 1100 and falling slowly or 1000 and rising on the West Branch of the Oswegatchie gauge is minimum. On my run on 11/1/2008 the gauge read just over 1200 and was dropping slowly. We were probably slightly below what I would consider the minimum for the run. It is important to note that this gauge is on the WB of the Oswegatchie after the Middle Branch joins it so it can only be used as a guideline. It is hard to judge because the run begins and ends with flatwater so that is all you see at the putin and takeout.

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.
2010 marked the 25th anniversary of protecting the Black and Moose rivers! View an online video documentary on the Moose River and the early role that American Whitewater played in protecting this amazing river.
