Big South Fork

Jason at the Take Out

We finally had one of our more local rivers available to run on Sunday. The Big South Fork was at about 2800cfs so Josh and I decided to get down there before the drought resumes. We met up with Bryon, Adam and Jason from the Vikings and ran from the confluence to the O & W Bridge. It was a great day of paddling, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else on a warm Sunday afternoon.

No problems with any of the rapids, the level was a little on the washed out side, making things easier for the most part. Josh did have a little shoulder scraping on Cheese Grater rock below The El.

Here is an account of the weekend at the Big South Fork from Barry Grimes. He details the permit situation at O&W and explains why the Big South Fork was so muddy this weekend. Link
