Ran from the dam to Indian Draft at 1200 cfs, about 6 miles in 2 hours. There is very little whitewater here: two class II rapids within a half-mile of the dam, and in another mile a small ledge with strong holes that can be run on far left or far right. That's pretty much it. Given the lack of whitewater, the "king's grant" nonsense, releases that are usually too little to float, and a relative lack of scenery, this run doesn't have a lot to recommend it.

Entered today at the Covington City Park, just below Westvaco and went to a new boat ramp that was build near route 18 at Whitey's (small grocery store). The river was runnable at 239 cfs reported on this site. There were only a few spots you had to watch. GoPro recording condensed to 5 minutes here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMxuDxgAAvw

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.
