We ran this stretch on December 1, 2010 after a good rain. The level spiked to 3.75 ft the night before, and was 2.1 ft. when we put on for the first run. Went back for a second run and it was about 1.9 ft. We were going to put in at Low Gap Creek, but decided that the level was dropping too fast. We put in at the ranger station and boated down to the GA-75 Alt bridge.
Visual, takes a lot of rain to get this one going. Chattahoochee in Helen will probably have to be over 400 cfs.
Permits are not required for this reach.
