I have run Fox Ck downstream from Troutdale to what i think is Rt. 677 in 1996 when the SF Holston @ Damascus was running 3200 cfs. It starts off slow but picks up to steady III III+. There were seven portages due to wood. The volume nearly doubles after Laurel ck joins in at which point Fox ck was running about 500 cfs. There were many posted signs but no fisherman. It was 32 degrees with a foot of snow on the ground which made boat dragging easy.
