The put-in for this run is at 3,900 feet, making it probably the highest run in the East. Here the river is very narrow and fast with mostly Class-2 rapids. There are many easy (Class-1 and -2) rapids and many pools. Further down, this is a very pleasant run on a beautiful river, one of the finest fishing rivers in the state. No stream in the state receives as many individual fish (or as big) from the state’s trout stocking program.
