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.
Use the map below to calculate how
to arrive to the main town from your zipcode.

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.
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.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
