River Description


March 12 2011 paboater2011 provided:
Toby Creek is located just north of the town of Clarion. It is a great place for upcoming boaters to start creeking. At lower levels it is mellow and poses no real hazards other than occasional wood. At higher levels it can get burly and quite swift with some sticky holes to avoid or punch through. There is one rapid that should probably be scouted at higher levels and that it is the 5 Aces rapid, a steep part of the creek with several consecutive holes. It can be very easily scouted on the river left side. If you do not wish to punch the holes at higher levels you can pretty much stay far left and sneak it. Other than this rapid, most of the rest is class III boogie water with a few ledges and pour overs that can get pretty turbulent at higher levels but are easily avoidable.

Toby Creek is located just north of the town of Clarion. It is a great place for upcoming boaters to start creeking. At lower levels it is mellow and poses no real hazards other than occasional wood. However, at higher levels it can get burly and quite swift with some sticky holes to avoid or punch through. All and all there is only one main rapid that should probably be scouted at higher levels and that it is the 5 Aces rapid- a steep part of the creek with several consecutive holes. It can be very easily scouted on the river left side. If you do not wish to punch the holes at higher levels you can pretty much stay far left and sneak it. Other than this rapid, most of the rest is class III boogie water with a few ledges and pour overs that can get pretty turbulent at higher levels but are easily avoidable.

Army Corps Study Threatens Lehigh River Boating

1/3/2020
Bob Nasdor

Paddlers on the Lehigh River below the Francis E. Walter Dam and Reservoir are concerned that a planned study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its partners, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection will lead to a reduction in whitewater boating opportunities on the Lehigh. The study will evaluate the feasibility of various alternatives to optimize project operation. Aside from the project's authorized primary missions of flood risk management and recreation, the study will also consider water supply and water quality, to identify possible improvements to the existing structure, infrastructure, and operations that will support current and future demands within the region. The Army Corps is holding a public meeting on January 9, 2020 at the Mountain Laurel Resort in White Haven, PA from 6-8 p.m. to explain the study and hear public comments. American Whitewater, Appalachian Mountain Club, and other organizations are expected to file comments with the Army Corps prior to the September 29th deadline in order to share our concerns about the study and potential impacts on boating, the outdoor recreation economy, and the Delaware RIver Basin. We encourage our members to attend the public meeting to voice their concerns.
