when there is a relase of signifigant quantity 3000+ squirt boaters should check out the island
behind the sycamore shoals park in elizabethton. there seems to be a nice seam in the river.

real mellow run. beautiful scenery. I've been using hand paddles and a dark colored boat to quietly
sneak up on the wildlife, it's fun!

This listing is slightly misleading. The stretch begins at Wilbur Dam and typically goes to the
Hunter Bridge. Approx 3 miles downstream. Going on the park in Elizabethton makes for an 8 mile
trip. There is a nice little hole at the B-cliff rapid approx 3/4 mile below the put-in. The whole
run is roadside and a trip of any lenth can be worked out. Releases happen every weekend in the
summer. Call the TVA line and enter 42 for the dam number.
