We had 3 paddler launch from Lieber beach and headed for the lower Cataract falls for a 12.5 mile round trip with a 3.4 MPH average pace.
Weather was sunny temp's mid 60's and rising. The wind also picked up during the paddle. We had small wind chop waves right before the S turn middle narrows section on way back to Lieber beach.
Water level was 1 foot below summer pool at 638.5 ft. But the water fall had a nice flow with 250 cfs coming down Mill Creek. With a dry spring this was not a high water trip. Once we found the old creek channel we did not have any issues getting back to the lower falls.
Great way to start the month of May. Cagles Mill Spring 2021 Pictures
