Ed Evangelidi shared:
This is a solid intermediate-level stream. Not only do the rapids require some skill but the durn
dams require considerable attention. All are runnable but with a significant amount of attention to
hydraulics or other problems. One small dam early on is very retentive. The suggested put-in is at
a small campground on Business 15, where a small fee is charged. The Monocacy gauge at Bridgeport
is a much better gauge but I do not have a correlation yet.

There's a lowhead dam just near the campground. "Give it some respect," says Bernie Farmer of the
