White River

Sunday Apr 7, 2002
Participants:
Kayak: Pierre Lafrance, Jeff Fletterick, Tim Pattillo, John Barrows, Fiona Barrows
Open Canoe: Richard Larsen, Andy Meilleur
Organizer: Richard Larsen
Difficulty: intermediate WW
Level: medium low
Gauge (cfs): 2500

The weather was clear, the air was not warm, and the river was somewhat low with cold water. The level was 2500 cfs at the gage at Hartford, and slowly dropping. Because of the cold conditions, the group floated down the river fairly quickly, without any extensive 'playing'. All did well, even at the ledges coming in to Gaysville, but many were getting a bit cold, so all of the kayaks took took out at the campground, where some cars had been spotted, 'just in case'. The open canoes, Andy and Rich, continued down to the takeout along route 107, without incident. There were Mergansers along the river that day, but no other wildlife of note. It was just a nice float on the river.
