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 McHenry, MD
