I live in the area, and have seen this section of the river at high water. It changes dramatically with a few inches of rain. So if any paddlers out there want to chase some rain and stake out, you will have some good paddling.
For now this river has no known gauge. The Powell @ Big Stone Gapan indicator.
This gauge should probably read somewhere in the 500cfs and higher for this reach to likely be running.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
