To be sure, this is an extremely small creek, making it tough to catch with boatable flows.

As calculated by USGS StreamStats 4.0 Beta software, drainages are as follows:

Location River Mile    Drainage
Canter Road (put-in) 0 0.36 square mile
Mount Olive Point Isabelle Road 1.6 2.76 sq.miles
Goodwin Schoolhouse Point Isabelle Road    3.54 8.48 sq.miles
State Route 222 4.9 10.8 sq.miles
State Route 743 (take-out) 7.0 17.7 square miles

Which is to suggest that there may be times theere is not enough flow at the listed put-in, but (if parking and access may be found) you may be able to put-in at someplace further down for a shorter but still worthwhile trip.
