    Anyone planning on going to Ohiopyle region over the 4th of July weekend?

    I looking to paddle either Lower or Middle Yough Friday July 3rd and Saturday July 4th. *"Note face masks required for Lower Yough shuttle bus"*

    Then paddle the Savage on July 5th for the scheduled release.  https://www.nab-wc.usace.army.mil/nab/northBranch.html

    Other options for more advanced paddlers the Upper Yough has releases scheduled July 3, 4 and 6th 11 AM - 2 PM https://safewaters.com/facility/12

    Note Stonycreek River does not have any scheduled releases that weekend.  https://benscreekcanoeclub.com/quemahoning-releases/ 

    I got camp site area F-7 reserved under my name at Tall Oaks from July 2nd thru  the 4th with a July 5th departure date.

    By my count we have a baker’s dozen rsvp’d so far.  Gonna be fun.

    pot-luck for Saturday night bring protein to grill, a dish to share and byob.

    put on for Lower on Saturday, purchase a Noon permit.  Buy an 11:00 permit if nooners are sold out, you have an hour to put on.
