Any durango boaters want to take two ashville boys down tomorrow? We would kill to get on it. If so post back or call 828-553-9331. We are in crested butte but will drive down tonight if we get a guide. Peace Gareth
Or was one skunking not enough for you?
It's raining like fucking Jesus in east/mid tennessee. hope you get on the Valle. By the way, I lost the number you said you called form, but the dude who took me down it lives in Knoxville. Good luck
Would personally recomend 2.2 when you put in on the new gauge for your first run down it. A little softer is a little nicer for me. Too a point, the bigger the better in there :twisted: The majority of us locally cut it off at about 2.1, 2.0. Its gettin pretty freakin low for my taste. Some jonsers go mank down it with 1.7-8 but not a recommended first time flow.
Definitely use the USGS as a basis but look at its trends. You may want to take a look at the visual gauge when you get there if you can for some real time data as it changes so rapidly. It is a USGS staff placed in the water after you pass through the horse fence. You will see a large fallen tree spanning Falls Creek off to the right just after you pass through the fence. Cross it and follow the trail down to creek level.
