Coal Creek Near Wellington, Ut

I happened to drive up Coal Creek on the way to look at petroglyphs up 9 mile canyon. What I saw was a small creek bed that looks like it get enough water in during the spring to provide some serious class V creeking. I'm too old, bald, fat, and chicken to do that anymore but it maybe a cherry that's ready to pick for someone who is still bold enough. It only looks to be 2-5 miles long with lots of gradient put in would be up by the old coal mine.
Has it been run? If not who will be the first?
Merry Christmas

Its likely that only locals know much about it. The only "Coal Canyon" gauge on the USGS site for Utah is apparently down near Cedar City and thus isn't the same one. There are probably about 4-5 Coal Canyons in Utah. Anyway, couldn't find anything about it in the River Runners Guide to Utah by Nichols either. Thus without a writeup and a gauge, few people would probably even be aware of it. It sounds like one of those creeks that rarely has enough water for boating, but given that its near Wellington, someone has probably run it after a big rain. I'll run it by my bud up in Layton to see if he's heard anything about it. Who knows, he might be the first....
