Hey there folks!

The Beginners Clinic is coming up June 7, 8 & 9 on the Big South Fork River Canyon Section.

Looks like the Big South Fork Canyon Section in Oneida, TN is going to be running and as long as in stays Low Water (between 200 and 1500 csf) it will happen there. If not and it floods out I’ll move it to Nolichucky River in Erwin TN. The campground for Big South Fork Canyon Section is going to be located at Bandy Creek Campground, Bandy Loop, Oneida, TN 37841. Sites A045, A046, A047 & AO48.
