September 4-6: Special release to draw down the reservoir. Wednesday through Friday the CSA will release about 375 CFS from 7 AM to 3:30 PM. Canyon should be runnable from 9 AM to 5 PM.
September 7 -8: This release is on as part of the special release to draw down the reservoir. This will be a normal (500 CFS) release and follow the normal schedule. Enjoy.
September 14: Due to lousy weather on Friday the 13th we are moving this event back to Saturday, the 14th of September. Meet around 7 PM at the Quemahoning Family Recreation Area. Boats must be registered. PFDs are mandatory. Boats must have a light. We supply chem lights but lots of folks add battery powered LEDs to make their boats "fancy". Afterwards we typically have a fire and share snacks, some folks bring stuff to cook over the fire; then we swap lies about our paddling adventures. Bring a folding chair.
On non-release days, the Stonycreek Canyon is good to paddle when the Ferndale Gauge is at 500 cfs or more. Also note that the Canyon gets pushy if the Ferndale Gauge is over 1000 cfs; be aware of your own abilities and limitations at these levels. Please check our Stony Gauge Link for current levels.
