Fife Brook Section of the Deerfield - August 17, 2013

Miami Beach
We did our annual RICKA Flatwater/Whitewater trip yesterday on the Fife Brook Section of the Deerfield. Release was at a little low – 850 cfs.

Since the turnout of flatwater paddlers was light, we decided to run the upper section.  Earl was nice enough to take a few flatwater paddlers down the lower section.  We had 7 boats – 3 canoes (Jim, John and me) and 4 kayaks (Bob, Tim, Pat and Byron) on the upper section.  The day was sunny and warm.

The trip itself was uneventfull.  We got delayed about a half an hour at the put-in waiting for the rafts and tubers to get started.  We had three successful runs at Zoar Gap, and one swim.
