Don't trust the gauge. It is located on a different river at least 8 or 9 miles upstream of where they intersect. It will give you an idea of how much water is in the area, but it's best to just take a look from Rt. 33 before you run. If the gauge is above 300cfs, odds are you're safe. I usually put in on Rt.33 shorty after crossing Raccoon Run where the Dry river comes out of the woods and meets the road. There is a small gravel turnoff on the east bound lane. Best take out is the Rawley Springs bridge. Take out on river right after seeing gum run (enters river right). There are some small trails that lead you out to the road. Just be weary of the dam. You'll know the dam is just ahead when you see an island with small trees on river left and large 35-40 ft. dead pine tree in the distance that bends out at a 45 degree from the right bank. The sooner you catch an eddy on the right, the safer you'll be. That dam has a MEAN looking hydraulic. Portage on the right best, the left bank is very steep. Also, the rapids immediately downstream of the dam normally have a healthy amount of strainers. I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE everyone to CAREFULLY SCOUT THE DAM from the road en route to the put in.

Attention Virginia Boaters!

During the high waters of Spring 2003, there has been a noticeable increase in reported confrontations between boaters and property owners in Virginia. Please remember to be respectful and courteous to property owners; do not trespass; and avoid confrontation in order to preserve access in the future.
