I went up to check out the South Fork of the Piney this morning. It was my first time on the South Fork, the gauge was reading about 500 cfs. There seemed to be plenty of water, but at the moment there is a lot of wood throughout the run. We scoped out some clean looking sections and ended up running the Cascades section multiple times. We had a blast and plan on going back to clean out some wood, so we can run the South Fork uninteruppted.

I ran Statons and South Fork of the Piney today (11/22) with a morning reading on the Piney gauge of 375 cfs. Both creeks had a thin flow but were definitely doable and worth the drive. By the time we puton the S Fork of the Piney at 2:00, the gauge was approximately 340 cfs. There were a ton of trees in both creeks and especially the South Fork. We portaged a few of the drops because of trees but most of the major drops were passable.

Attention Virginia Boaters!

Jason Robertson

During the high waters of Spring 2003, there has been a noticeable increase in reported confrontations between boaters and property owners in Virginia. Please remember to be respectful and courteous to property owners; do not trespass; and avoid confrontation in order to preserve access in the future.
