I paddled this little creek on 5/17/08 and felt it was a minimum level for an enjoyable run withot much scraping. The gauge corellations that afternoon were as follows:
Blackwater @ Davis 4.3 = 700 to 800 cfs
Blackwater NR Davis 3.5 = 500 cfs
This will be my min. level, NOT 300 cfs as suggested min. level indicated.
This is a scenic little stream with an easy shuttle and believe it or not contains horseshoe shaped ledges for the first 3rd of the run. Walter Haydel
Based on a recommendation by Steve Ettinger. Please note that this is an "indicator gage," from a nearby stream in the same watershed. Such indicator gages are best used as a guide--a way to figure out whether it's even worth looking at the stream or not.
Permits are not required for this reach.
