I paddled this at a little over 3'. No features or drops. It would be Class II except for the strainers in the top 4 miles. Very dangerous!

Gertler says the minimum level on the gauge is 1.4 feet. This is not right. I was there with a gauge reading of 2.15 and the creek was very low. The gauge is in a pool behind a 2' weir, and with two inches of water spilling over the lip of the weir registered the 2.15 ft. A couple more inches over the weir would bring the creek to life. Also, the difficulty level seems to be lower than class III, but perhaps a lot more water would bring it up.

Ohiopyle State Park Updates River Regulations

2018-03-30 14:00:00-04
Charlie Walbridge

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.

There will be a one day conference on January 31st in eastern Pennsylvania that will address dam removal and rehabilitation in the state and region. It is likely that this very affordable conference would be helpful to paddlers interested in working on dam removal projects in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. Registration for the conference is due by January 23rd.
