The SWEPCO schedule for "The Narrows" dam shows 3-gate releases starting at noon on Wednesday, continuing until after dark. If we get on the water by 3:00 or 3:30, we will have the full effect of the push with plenty behind us still on the way.

4.5 miles in about 1.5 hours seems about right for planning purposes.

NOTE: This is genuine SWIFTWATER paddling. There are no extraordinary hazards beyond the hydraulics and "pushiness" of the swiftwater, and the usual shore-bound sweepers, but please assess your boat control capabilities before you decide to join in the fun.

Details at a Glance:
Wednesday - meet behind the fence at the Muddy Fork Road take-out at 2:30, on the water by about 3:15 for about 4.5 miles - bring water, snack, helmet, sun protection
