Mark, there is an online gage. I'm sure that Ed E would run it at 100 cfs. Maybe a minimum of 125 for the rest of us. - Lee Thonus
No online gauge. From Ed Gertler's Book: The USGS Gauge at the railroad bridge upstream of Blue Mount Road should read at least 1.7 feet. Also, the water should be up to at least the bottom of the arch on the Route 45 Bridge at Parkton.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

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!
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
