River Description

The run is class 2 moves, but approaches class 3 or higher for its continuity.

There are a few spots to note, about 2-3 miles from the end there is some concrete in the middle of the river, like a piece of road washed down, so that should be avoided on the right. It is visible from the road along the drive up There are a few slides, one set about a mile from the end and the other entering into the casselman. Take out at Harnedsville bridge or somewhere along the Middle Yough.

Put-in

Off Rt 523, called whites creek road. Coming from 40 it will be on your left, from Confluence on the right.

Ran Whites creek today at 3.8 on the Casselman gauge. Likely the lower runnable level but had a
blast. There is a creek wide strainer about a 1/4 of the way down the run around a left turn. Could
be dangerous and can be avoided by hugging the left bank. Hopefully I will get back there soon and
cut it. The rest of the creek is pretty clear of wood.

I ran Whites Creek this weekend, 03/25/12 with a fairly high flow. It is basically class II with
one class three rapid. There are half a dozen logs in the creek to portage! Most of these come
around blind turns, so catch your eddies. The only class three rapid is the slide, which is about
80 feet long. Just before the confluence with the Casselman there is a long rapid with a lot of
ledges. The entire run is continuous with the only pool coming after the slide.
