Five of us Paddled the Elk River below Webster Springs. There were two catarafts and a raft. The level was a bit higher than expected, nearly 7′. We were expecting it to be just below 6′. Anyway, it was a fun trip with lots of big bouncy waves. Most rocks were covered up. Here is a video of some of the rapids.

Water was higher than expected, 9′ on the Thurmond gauge. Many of the rapids were somewhat washed out, mostly big wave trains. Rain was forecast but we only saw blue skies and sunshine. Finished the run in 2 1/2 hours including a stop for lunch. There was plenty of current to carry us through the flat pools.
