North Carolina Boating? Wilkesboro

Anyone ever done a lot of baoting out in NC? how is it? what is some of the good stuff out there? How close are the rivers to wilkesboro, it's in the North West part of the state. I am going to be out there for 4-8 weeks and definitely want to get on the water out there. Are the rivers still flowing pretty well? Any beta is much appriciated.

Thanks,

Zach

Ask this question on boatertalk.com that place is eastern-centric almost to a fault...

As usual, check out http://www.americanwhitewater.org/rivers/ and http://www.allaboutrivers.com/guides/index.cfm .

There's also a good book, Canoeing and Kayaking Guide to the Carolinas. I have two of the books. I'll mail you mine for $15.

NC boating

Wilksebourough is near boone I believe. The watagua, wilsons creek and the elk are the closest. Asheville area has stuff right around there and the smokies are west of there. Probably expect maybe a half an hour to a couple hours to the river depending on where you want to go. Some dam release should still be going: Nanty, Ocoee, and pigeon. West Virginia isnt too far. Most rivers are rain dependent. Boatingbeta.com has good info. Hope it helps. Russell
