No release on September 9 or 10. We will post any news regarding whitewater releases from Quemahoning Reservoir ASAP.
Sorry to have to announce, but there will not be a release for this coming weekend of Aug 26th, and 27th. There is still an issue with the intake tower at the dam. There is still a vibration issue, and it needs to be fixed before any future white water releases. We will keep everyone informed as we are. Thanks.
Middle Yough trips are a great tradition of the Benscreek Canoe Club. This 9 mile section of the Youghiogheny River is Class 1+, clean and beautiful. Good for recreational kayaks, canoes and whitewater boats. This is a good trip for beginners to learn and practice moving water skills also for experienced paddlers to keep their skills sharp. Meet at RamCat Put-in at 10 AM to set shuttle. We put on around 11:30. Bring lunch for on the river. Boats do not need to be registered but PFDs are mandatory. Recreational kayakers are urged to have sprayskirts.
