We ran this May 20, 2018 at ~270cfs. There was sufficient water to float the whole way to the Monocacy. Stream-wide strainers were easy to avoid and portage around. Note: there is a low-head dam on this run as you approach the Monocacy. Portage on the left.

Tonight American Whitewater presented the Town of Friendsville, Maryland with a $5000 check towards the extension of the Upper Yough Access Parking Area. This, combined with a $1000 donation from Keelhaulers Canoe Club, made a strong statement of how much paddlers value the river and the town! Under the leadership of Mayor Spencer Schlosnagle and long time paddler and Friendsville resident Jess Whittemore the town raised $7 in additional funding for every dollar paddlers donated - just like they did on the initial construction! This makes these gifts a great value for the whitewater community. A big shout out and thank you to ALL who donated!
