River Description

The put-in must be in the large eddy below Troy Falls (Class VI). I am assuming that the takeout is at the confluence with the Hudson River. Longitude and latitudes are approximate.

Class: III-VI

Note: The photos posted by Chris Morelli were taken on Wyants Kill south of Troy.

Checking back in, after a few nights of rain, levels went up, i ran the drop below the slide/mill and it was good, watch out for a dangerous pin pothole on the first part of the drop, I went around this pothole but at higher levels it should be good.

Army Corps Study Threatens Lehigh River Boating

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.
