Trip Calendar

River: Mongaup River, Glen Spey, NY including dam to powerhouse
Date: 10/27/2019
Class: II+
Ability: Nov
Coordinator: Tom Hart
Notes: We will be starting at the dam. As part of the relicensing of the Rio Dam on the Mongaup, Eagle Creek will be releasing an additional 125 cfs (in addition to the 100 cfs min flow) below the dam on October 27th. This is a scheduled 1 barrel release day. The study will tell us whether the bypassed reach is boatable at 250 cfs (the amount they can release with existing equipment). It will also also allow us to evaluate the reach below the powerhouse with an additional 125 cfs during a 1 barrel release. Cold water and likely air so wet or dry suit required.
Very likely we'll be able to get a 'normal trip' together for those who don't want to risk a scrape fest on the upper.
