River Description

From Zen Guru Rich Yester:
It takes a massive amount of rain (something along the lines of an inch and a half over night, without any foliage on the trees) to get this one going. Being so tiny, it doesn't hold water very well, so timing is fairly precious.

Squaw is very technical and manky boogie water, with two true gems. There is an island in the rapid just above the first (and most major). Get out above the island on the right, and look below for the first while you're out checking for wood. The drop is somewhat elaborate, but basically has a slide into a shallow pool. Failure to land flat in the big one would very likely result into an ankle injury, but boofing is not so easily achieved with the shallow approach. Not long thereafter is the second gem. There is a pair of brutal slots, and then the river bends out of sight to the right. After the bend is a short run-out, and then a ten foot drop into a sluice-slot.

Take out on river left above PA 268. If Squaw is running, you'll probably be able to catch the nearby Little Scrubgrass as well.

There will be a one day conference on January 31st in eastern Pennsylvania that will address dam removal and rehabilitation in the state and region. It is likely that this very affordable conference would be helpful to paddlers interested in working on dam removal projects in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. Registration for the conference is due by January 23rd.
