APEs Big Laurel/FB9 Creeking Trip Report

saskia wrote 996 days ago:


The week of July 13th, 2015 was filled with heavy rains in the southeast which got many creeks and rivers up and running at very healthy flows during the week!  Big Laurel stayed above 1’-0” on the gauge Monday-Wednesday with all the rain.  This setup a possibility for the run to hold for a Saturday trip.  On Friday gauge readings came from the Laurel River Store that the run was at +1” on the gauge in the A.M. and the level only dropped to 0” in the P.M. (The run is consider runnable down to -6” on bridge gauge at the put-in).  Things were looking very promising for a good low runnable level on Saturday…

A poll was given to the Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts earlier in the week to choose a class III run for a club river trip on Saturday, July 18, 2015.  A majority of the respondents were very interested in giving Big Laurel a go for a beginner creek style run if it was at a runnable level.  So after checking the level one final time on Friday afternoon the call was made to meet at the Big Laurel put-in Saturday morning to set shuttle for a run down to the French broad Section 9 take-out in Hot Springs.
