Here’s a pretty nice run if you’re short on time. The current starts out very slow, but by the end of the trip, you’ll have passed (either floating or walking, depending on current rainfall amounts and the water level) over a series of ledges and an old dam close to Weoka Mills. Through summer and fall, good rainfall is required to keep this creek decently runnable. Keep your eye on the Hatchet gauge, which currently will give you the closest approximation of the Weoka’s level. Unfortunately the last 10 years or so have not been very good for floating the Weoka. It’s easier said than done, but try to catch this one no more than one day after a good rain.

Weoka is a great creek when the rainfall is good. There is a nice play spot above the falls, and the falls is nice run. The old dam can be ran at high water and makes nice drop.
