A decade ago I wrote this about Joe's Brook: "At medium-high levels Joe's Brook is a 7 course meal for solid class III-IV boaters who are ready for a bonafide class IV experience."

I have been trying to pin down the level on Joe's this past week and I think the level on Saturday will be medium. Yesterday, 4/20, Matt Young reported Joe's to be "the low end of good." Of course, the Saturday level will depend heavily on the bag/bladder inflation at the lip of the GMP dam on Joe's Pond in West Danville (and we have been disappointed more than once in the past - whether too low, or too high).

If Joe's on 4/22 appeals and you are willing to take a gamble on the level, reply to this message or email/text me (802-324-8497).
