    Default Nantahala DH

    Any news on the condition of the Nanny DH?

    I heard a few weeks ago they were diverting all flow through the DH.
    Is it still like that?

    Yep. Starting today they have upped the release to 700 cfs. That's at least 3 times its normal flow. The lower Nan is as high as it is during peak summer rafting season.

    Tom,
    Does that mean the DH area is unfishable?

    I haven't been up there since last winter, and was looking to go up there soon.

    Thanks for any info.

    Without question. It is not fishable. I rode up the road Saturday morning and the only eddys you could see were on the inside of some of the sharp bends in the river. I'm not a paddler but I'd guess the first three miles from the powerhouse is now at least a class 4 whitewater river. The top mile thru the cascades is maybe class 5.

    O.K.

    Thanks for the info.

    When I went to that link you gave, I think I understood that it would change after this weekend.
