250cfs release (400cfs with natural flow)
After a fun day with the families on the Tuck, John, Joe and I stepped it up a notch with a run on the Upper Nantahala. We met Joey at the take-out, then shuttled to the top. This was my second PFD of the day and the most fun I have had in a long, long time. I was in my Jackson Fun and had no idea what the run would be like, other than it was III+. Super continuous, great class II boogie between every class III drop and hole. All four had good dry hair runs. Joey's wife Julia met us at the take-out to shuttle John back up to his truck. Just a great time on a gem of a creek. I hope I get to run it again.
