New to Kentucky

Hello all I just moved to Rineyville, Kentucky and am looking for some good rivers to run in the area. Me and my wife are new to kayaking and looking for some good rivers to run in the area, have run up to class III.

Here's where you want to be...2 local paddling clubs in KY will help you out.
Bluegrass Wildwater Association...most of us are in Lexington but we have members all over the country...we put on a spring clinic in May, host the National Paddling Film Festival among other events...
Bluegrass Wildwater Association
Out of Louisville...the Vikings...smaller group...

The WW forum for the east is Boatertalk.
BoaterTalk: whitewater kayaking, stand up paddling, whitewater canoeing, river rafting

The closest whitewater to you will be Elkhorn Creek in Franklin County (class II), and other creeks in that area run after heavy rains.
Rockcastle River Narrows near London (III-IV)
Big South Fork on the Cumberland Plateau near Oneida, TN (III-IV-) Lots of creeks and rivers on the Plateau.
Russell Fork on the KY/VA border is one we hit up a lot. Gorge is class IV-V, Upper and Lower sections are III. Dam and free flow, fluctuates a lot.
