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.

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.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
This past fall American Whitewater met with Ohiopyle State Park managers to discuss possible updates to their whitewater paddling regulations. The first topic was to change the rules governing raft sizes at different water levels to recognize the capabilities of self-bailing rafts. Shorter self-bailing boats will now be allowed to run the river at high water. Some small changes to the regulations will make Ohiopyle Falls more accessible to paddlers. A change in the way the gauge is interpreted should make the falls "legal" on more days. Although whitewater paddlers are only one part of the vast public that visits the park, every effort was made to accommodate them while avoiding user conflicts and safety hazards. Special thanks goes to Ken Bisbee, Ohiopyle State Park Operations Manager and John Hallas, a former Ohiopyle State Park Operations Manager who is now Director of State Parks.
