Event Type

Depending on water but in all likelihood Saturday will be the best day at around 2500 cfs. Very likely we’ll split into a fast (bombers) and slow (surfers) group.

For those that haven’t done the Lehigh at bigger water, rolling is really nice as swims are long but below 3k not mandatory. There’s lots of big avoidable holes and good on the fly surfing (best for longer boats as boat speed matters). Almost nothing is rententative and water is relatively warm (still likely heavier wetsuit at a minimum…it is October) so it’s a chance to hit holes and waves you wouldn’t normally hit…or just float fast in a pretty place.

Registration will be opened up as we get closer and have a better guess on water….most likely late August.

We’re camping at Hickory Run Group campsites and have a site reserved. If anyone wants to volunteer to coordinate shared food please contact us. Adult beverages are technically prohibited but we’ve never seen a ranger at these sites. Porta Potties and no showers on site but otherwise comfortable, large sites.

If it’s a very wet fall Friday will be even bigger and we’ll paddle then as well. But this seldom happens.
