Paddled from Lick Run/Babb Creek to Rattlesnake Rock (Pine Creek) 01-12-12. Launching at the confluence of Lick Run the first 3 - 4 miles held one signature rapid and many undercut ledges. Strainers were as expected, portaging around 10 or more, lost count. The lower section, below Morris, widened out but still offered great waves with the addition of the Stony and Wilson Creek. Strainers turned into sweepers and the pace picked up, taking only half the time to cover the same distance as the upper. The mile freeze down on Pine to Rattlesnake Rock canoe access offered a view of 4 bald eagles. Entire trip top to bottom took around five hours with the local Blockhouse Creek gauge around 190cfs. Great wilderness run !

Ran lower 6 miles (Morris to Blackwell in Spring 2005 at 120 cfs (about 1.9 ft. on BlockHouse Creek gauge). A fun, easy class II run. About 6" to 1' higher might make it a very good run.-- Steve Guthrie

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.
