Drainage area at our listed put-in is approximately 21 sq.mi. (as calculated via USGS StreamStats Beta software).
*The cited gauge is for Big Raccoon Creek, a relatively similar sized stream 12 miles away which should provide some indication of runnability. The 'minimum' is purely conjecture, and correspondence of gauge readings is not assured.
The best indicator is to watch weather patterns and rainfall totals for the area.
This is a small watershed, and will be very tough to catch with water. In general, you will want to be there within a few hours after a good rain or you will have missed it.
Permits are not required for this reach.

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!
