My friend and I drove up from Nashville on 4-6 and ran the creek/river. We put in at Nydeck Trl bridge at 915 am and got off the river at 545 roughly at Burnt Mill Bridge. According to my Tacoma it was a 12 mile shuttle between the two points. We took occasional breaks but none very long, not even a long lunch, even though we did enjoy a stop on a sandy beach toward the end. Flow rate was around 260-275 cfs give or take. We scraped a few places and had to use our bodies and paddles to push off and get going again but overall a great trip, just enough water to be fun and relaxing. Id recommend at least 325 or above. We were in kayaks and handled all the class II areas fairly well at this low level. Water was crystal clear most of the trip in the shallows and provided for some beautiful color. Only a few miles from the takeout we spotted a Bald Eagle in a tree on the East side of the Clear Fork. Pretty cool. Great trip this time of year as lots of greenery and sunshine abound!
