PFD today at 600 cfs, very scrapey and lots of wood/deadfall, but passible. This run is very narrow in spots. 1000 cfs probably a much more comfortable level.
There is a undercut and a decent sized pothole on the left side of the slide...a good(4-5ft) haystack followed by a nice sized hole and two large diagonal curlers appears when the dam is overflowing significantly
Level? Look for the Yahoola Resevoir Dam to be actively overflowing at the saw teeth.<br />
Put In: Park at the public lot at the resevoir, and put in at base of the dam.<br />
Baptismal Slides (II) This is the first real rapid you'll come to. Run it just about any way you want-no real hazards.<br />
7-10 Split (II) This is a gnarly drop split by a boulder clog and a dead tree. The River Right line could be run at higher levels, but the river left line is your best bet. Its a two tiered drop of about 4 feet.<br />
After that is nothing more than boogie water and flats until you reach the "mighty" chestatee.<br />
Could have fome potential for fun during flood levels, or if Lumpkin county ever needs to do a release on the resevoir.
