Great water @ noli

Just had my first rafting trip of the year on the nolichucky today. Living right near the river, we've had some flooding lately, and the river peaked at near 10k cfs a day or two ago. The water was still GREAT today.

After the low drag of last year, this was a warm (well, chilly) welcome. If anyone's in the area I highly suggest you hit it up before it drains out. It would also be great if someone would pray to the river gods to keep it high.

What is the Noli like at 10 grand? I am only familiar with the markings on the bridge above the put-in. I have only boated around 4 1/2 ft on the old gauge, is quater mile big or washed out? Marc

Quarter mile is huge at that level. Best to sneak most of it after the 2nd drop to the right. Rooster tail is washed out, but makes for some great waves. After most of the bottom end of last year having it running at 700cfs on a good day, this was a great trip.

It's down to 2200 now though.
