Lee has cleared major strainers from their earlier positions below the ledges. Where they ended up...I have no idea. Advise caution as I only scouted from the road way (Winters Run Rd).
Winters hit 500cfm. Beautifully runnable. From Singer to Rt 7: Smoth fast and fun! Great to learn on! Watch for floating wood running in the current! All pics are from Singer Rd to Rt 7. The steps above Rt 7 disappear at this level and turn into pretty good standing waves. Also, watch below the hairpin left with ledges on right. There is a surprisingly sticky hole (pictured) then its on to negotiate through the submerged island (recognizable by the trees in the middle of the creek). Stay river left close to the island.
Four natural shelves covering about 100 yards of Winter's Run just before bridge at RT 7. These are nice for beginners after a little rain. Runoff had these runable at 68cfs yesterday, when the boulder field below the dam (Singer Rd) was still unpassable. Scouting at low water, no big rocks to worry about if you flip. Going back to scout today with guage @ 133 cfs

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!
