Catatonk Creek (Candor to Owego) Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Catatonk Creek begins in Spencer Lake and travels south to Spencer, east to Candor, then southeast until it joins the Owego Creek just north of Owego. It is navigable from Spencer to Candor, but we don’t recommend this section. Paddling is impeded by low bridges, dams, low water and barbed wire fences crossing the waterway.
The segment from Candor to Owego, however, is very pleasant and is suitable for beginners. You’ll encounter shallow sections early on as the stream splits around islands. Then it becomes a deeper, fairly wide creek with lush, forested banks. The bottom section has some road noise and one place where a log across the stream produces a small drop. Bring your fishing pole. These waters have largemouth and smallmouth bass and brown trout."
