Swam the Gap – Again - August 1st

Hooked up with Andy, Hector and some of the crew from the NPMB yesterday for a run on the Fife Brook section of the Deerfield. Release was 1,000 cfs. With the exception of the Gap, the run was pleasant and uneventful. Andy and I both tried the left line through the Gap. I went first so I could get some pictures at the bottom - wishful thinking. I missed the big eddy at the top and flipped in the big hole in the middle. Andy made a clean run, but of course, he has no pictures to show for it since I was emptying out my boat – sorry Andy.  Lessons learned:
  • Scout the Gap before you run it - duh!
  • At flows over 1,000 cfs, run the center line
Great day, it was nice to get out to paddle some moving water again.
