Gauge Description:

This is a flashy watershed and the Delta gauge often does not accurately reflect the levels of this watershed. If you are not familiar with the South Tyger, I suggest soliciting local information. For current information about river levels, email Jim Spears who has graciously agreed to be a local contact. Local rainfall is critical. Two sites to post a planned trip on or to request information are Carolina Paddlers Assembly and Upstate Paddling. You will have to join these groups to post but they are open to the public. You may pick up some local paddlers as well. I have not run this reach. We are waiting for cool weather (no snakes and mosquitos) and enough water to give it a go.
