The Weogufka is a swift-running rocky river. The banks are muddy and dense with trees, and there are few places to dock. You’ll be impressed by the vertically escalating rocky ridges halfway into the trip. In higher water the shoals and rapids are excellent. The Weogufka is a river that people have heard of but don’t know much about. Located just east of the Coosa Wildlife Management Area, the Weogufka rushes over rocky shoals as it heads toward Mitchell Lake. The locals refer to one of these ridges as Big Eddy Mountain, which rises 969 feet above sea level. Big Eddy Mountain is so named because the creek below the mountain at one time formed a large eddy, about 300 yards wide and 12 to 14 feet deep. The entire trip is far removed from civilization, with a single visible gazebo encountered along the way. Green moss growing on the rocks under the shallow water gives it a beautiful green hue. Many times the river flows over green grass growing out from the edges of the bank.
