Guys, the Gauley is running at a reduced flow right now on Fridays, Sundays, and Mondays due to the drought (still fun but sub-optimal). The Chattooga is not remotely worth it as anything more than a scenic paddle at less than one foot (which it is now). The Green is running 5.5 inches, stupid brutal low, can't run Go Left or Gorilla and Sunshine is a sketch fest. The New is super low, the Dries aren't running, I don't know about Rock Island. Basically NC is in the midst of the worst drought in recorded history. Even if we got a tropical storm or two in the next week before you come, everything will still be low. We need about 6 months of steady rain to fix this water table.
If you're desperate, come on out. If not, I wouldn't waste the time and gas money while things are so lame around here.
