Rob Farmer---I did this several years ago, and for me it did not meet the hype in Appalachian Whitewater, Volume 2. But it was very low when I caught it. There were some man-made hazards/trash in one spot. I was disappointed. I parked near a bridge at the put-in, next to a water company pumping station or something, and the police hassled me slightly upon my return in the dark. Well, he did end up holding my flashlight, but, still, this area is the only area where I seem to get stopped by the police regularly while engaged in strictly paddling-related activities. When this is up, the Stony is way-cranking, fer shure.

Gage Descriptions

The Ferndale gage is well downstream on the Stonycreek, not in the Shade Creek system, and thus must be used as a rough guide only.  You have to do a look-see to see if it's running.

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.
