We paddled this creek on 6/9/2018 for a change of pace. The gauge on this AW page read 383--please note that is a gauge for Tallulah River, not Tiger Creek itself which was running way less. But was still passable and enjoyable at that level, though probably a little more fun at a higher flow.
Angry landowners rapid was probably 8-10 feet and a bumpy slide. A little wood in the main line of that rapid that is easily avoided. No other real wood issues. However, about half way down the run there is a metal cable running between two trees and across the entire river. A big piece of tree trunk is stuck on it bring the cable to within 2 feet of the creek's surface. At higher flows, this could pose a real hazard to someone unaware it was there.
There are a couple surfing spots big enough to side surf and 360 in a Remix. Despite the name of the first rapid, we encountered only a fisherman and a pleasant landowner who was interested in exploring the creek in his lake kayak.
