River Description

(St. Francis tributary)

A Canoeing & Kayaking Guide to the Ozarks (formerly Ozark Whitewater) by Tom Kennon (3rd edition, Menasha Ridge Press) has a good description of the run. MoCreekin’ has some good info about this and other creek runs in Missouri.

Rapid Descriptions


Gage Descriptions

Look for 1" of rain within 6 hours at the Glover rain gage.
A paddler’s gauge is on the Hwy E bridge at the put-in. The gauge is new (12/27/2005) so the minimum is not known, maybe 2.0 ft(?). The gauge has yet to be correlated with any of the USGS gauges but a crude indicator of runnability is for the St. Francis to be greater than 5 feet.
