We recommend launching at Route 44 and taking out at the dam in Pineville. The sections upstream are difficult. We had to line the canoe through a couple of rapids and parking is an issue. The run from route 44 to Pineville takes about two hours.
While we did not fish, it looked promising.
To reach the takeout, follow route 44 east and turn right on E. Putnam Road. This turns into Cutler Road. Then turn Right at Stone Road and Left at River Road. The dam at Pineville will be on your right about a mile after entering River Road. Takeout to the left of the spillway onto what appears top be public land. To the right is clearly private land.
