It'll be interesting to hear what the first boaters down find out this spring!

Saw my first boat flip at Warm Springs, on my first trip in 1967; I even have a picture of it somewhere.

Warm Springs had more reputation than bark; stay on the right side but don't get kicked out by the rocks on that side and it was an easy run. Get in the middle and expect to be killed and eaten. Looks like the new fall is going to make staying right a challenge.
