July 27 and 28 Releases are on!

Summer is chugging along and on most years Quemahoning Reservoir would be too low for releases. But this summer has been wet enough that the reservoir has enough water for a release. There will be a full whitewater release from Quemahoning Reservoir this weekend (July 27th and 28th). Weather looks great. Go Play!!

July is looking good.

July releases on the 13th and 14th are still on. Unless there is enough natural flow to stop the release. See our Release page for details. Weather looks beautiful. Enjoy.

July’s Middle Yough Trip has been rescheduled (due to conflicts) to Sunday, July 14th. Weather looks beautiful but the river is forecast to be around 4 ft. This is not a good level for rec kayaks without a good sprayskirt and some experience in moving water. 

Quemahoning Full Moon Paddle on July 16th at Quemahoning Family Recreation Area.

SurfSUP is conducting their First Waves event on Sunday, July 21 at Greenhouse Park.
