Hindostan Falls Trip, East Fork White River; Shoals, IN August 11th, 2018
This is a very scenic trip on the East Fork of the White River, passing by Beaver Bluffs and ending at Hindostan Falls. A few bald eagles are expected to be seen on this trip as well. It is a 13.5 mile trip, so plan on about 6 hours to finish it with a lunch stop. This is a great beginner trip, as there is usually a good flow, few snags and usually no portaging; just make sure you are capable of paddling 6 hours straight. Camping is available at Martin State Forest 2 miles east of Shoals on US 50.
Put-in is at 8th St. and Main St. in Shoals, IN. Meet here at 10 am and then we’ll run shuttle to the take out. If you need a GPS address, the Shoals Christian Church is roughly at 6th St. and Main St., use the address 600 Main St, Shoals, IN 47581
Once everyone has dropped off gear at the put-in, we’ll run shuttle to the take out. Take US 150 south to State Road 550 and continue to Hindostan Rd, then turn left and proceed to the river. You can use google maps and search Hindostan Falls Public Fishing Area, Shoals, IN 47581 for directions.
The trip will go on rain or shine, so please pack for the weather. If there is a definite threat of thunderstorms and lightning, the trip will get canceled; so please watch your email.
Otherwise, please pack the normal necessities: pfd, paddle, lunch, sunscreen, bugspray, snacks, beverages, water, sunglasses, good sense of humor and a sense of adventure.
Please RSVP to me by August 10th or if you have any questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on the river!
