Shenango River in Pennsylvania

Trip Overview

Current was slow as expected. We gauge flow based on military site that monitors dam output: http://www.lrp.usace.army.mil/Missions/Water-Management/Reservoir-Forecast/ Today's output was 260 CFS.

West Middlesex to Pulaski has a few spots of very mild novice friendly "Rapids" which make this section a little more adventurous. No down trees, very nice float. Took about 2.5 hours of little paddling mostly floating to reach Pulaski Bridge at 551/208.

208 to Nashau was also nice float. Mild paddling and we reached exit point approx 1.5 hours

A little over 10 miles in all. We will be doing the West Middlesex to Nashau run again!!!

None

Directions:
