Will be in Chattanooga 4th weekend of April - looking for Photo Op


I am trying to get into more whitewater photography, and I will be in the Chattanooga area the fourth weekend of April. I know there is the Ocoee river in the area, does anyone know if that is easy enough access to spectators?

Also, is there any rapids in the area that are not as 'popular' as the Ocoee that I should look for photo opportunities? Any info would be great

The Middle Ocoee will be running, and does have some roadside rapids. Double Trouble is roadside and pretty photogenic. Hell Hole is also. The Hero side of hero's and turkeys is pretty easy to get to, and so is Slice and Dice. Just drive along 64 until you see something attractive. The Upper Ocoee won't run until May. Also consider the Tellico River and Suck Creek, both of which are nearby and pretty much roadside.
