"Paddling skills" Catawba Warnings Or Dangers Tip by snakeman454

Catawba Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 0 photos

If you plan to paddle on the Catawba, make sure you check with someone knowledgable about the river and the area. Water levels can go from 500 cfs (cubic feet per sec) (almost have to walk your boat) to 15,000 cfs(I wouldn't paddle that if my life depended on it!). Contacting the rangers at Landsford Canal State Park is the best source of info. The ranger has been there over 20 years.
