09/22/2017 Another beautiful Friday afternoon with a few hours to kill before dinner. Oh snap, the Delaware River is too low for Scudders Falls; what do we do? We had read that the Lambertville Wing Dam Park & Play spot is more forgiving at low water, even as low as it was on Friday (Trenton Gauge 3:30pm 8.24' / 3580cfs). We parked on the NJ side of the river at the Lambertville Boat Launch. This is a great spot with parking, picnic area, bathrooms and a nice put-in. Once in our kayaks, we paddled down river 1/2 mile to the Wing Dam. The Lambertville Wing Dam consists of two massive concrete "wings" that extend into the river from both the NJ and PA sides of the Delaware with a large opening in the center. We decided to explore the PA side of the Wing Dam. We got out of our kayaks and walked along the concrete structure to scout the rapids below. Even at this low water level there was still lots of features. We played for around 2 hours below the Wing Dam and then hauled our kayaks back over the Wing and paddled up river and back to our NJ put-in. So when the Lehigh River Dam releases are done for the season and Scudders Falls flow on the Delaware is too low; no worries, there is still another place to play on the River! We had a great day! ... See MoreSee Less

Lower Yough first timers trip:

September 30, October 1. Camping will be at Tall Oaks Campground. Here's how this will work. I will reserve a group site at Tall Oaks and will advise everyone of the group site number (more than likely T-49). We will need to purchase launch permits, please advise your participation as soon as possible. I would like to purchase the permits in one buy as it saves us repeated service charges. You will also need cash for a wrist band for shuttle bus service. I am looking for 3-4 total support/safety boaters and then those that are first timers/or want to get another look at this river with a supportive crew.

Larry PalmerWas gonna say...we can't do this at Nox anymore without the letter of authorization for $25, or we hold a serendipitous meeting of like minded people, fully and completely disorganized.

Sheldon LinnGery, I have no idea as I didn't authorize it. Larry, totally disorganized, and ready to deny any part of it will work just fine.
