Be Careful what you wish for....
That was the theme for the weekend as we had not 2" of rain on Thursday night but over 4.5 “ in 24 hours. Needless to say everything flooded big. It was a scramble to find rivers low enough to run on Friday, that were safe. The Savage went to almost 5000 cfs which is big enough to move rocks. The Cheat was over 10 ft in Albright which is around 25,000 cfs. The Big Sandy was over 10 ft and about 5000 cfs too, and the winner of them all was the Upper Yough which crested at just over 7,000 cfs which is enough to move around some of last years log jams. We had a good weekend on the North Branch of the Potomac and Casselman river at big flows which makes easy river seem hard.
We will certainly have water all week going into Memorial Day weekend and this one will be memorable. I have not seen this much water in the rivers in a long time.
We still have room on Friday and Saturday for the Upper Yough and the Cheat will hold at great levels for “Sunday so jump start your summer by getting in on some really awesome rafting with the best conditions for this time of year in the last several years!
This will be a fun time so don't delay call today.
The unofficial start to summer is just a little more than a week away. Dust off the barbeques and get ready to have some summer fun.
The whitewater season is in full swing and the conditions are awesome right now with the water warming up nicely. We have endured a really hard cold spring and now it’s turned around to where it is summer like with temps in the 80's.
For the last two Friday Upper Yough releases in May, I will be wheeling and dealing so give us a call. You won’t find a better raft trip then the Upper Yough so don’t delay.
We have several days of rain in the forecast and conditions this Friday May 16 will be exceptional so call today and reserve your next great adventure.
The Upper Yough is truly on of the best trips on the east coast and certainly one of the top ten in the country so give us a call. 800 477 3723 and mention promo code raft.
Email or call just don’t delay, we’re waiting to hear from you.
We all know how special our mothers are and we also love to get out on the river. So to help with that I’m offering a special deal to raft this Mother’s day weekend. Raft the Upper Yough on Friday May 9th or Monday May 12th and bring your mom and she goes for free. What could be a better gift than rafting with your mother, wife, or significant other and take a ride on the wild side.
We just had a good storm roll through and the conditions couldn’t be any better. Warm temps on the way for the weekend and great water levels will be had on Friday. I can’t think of a better way to spend time with the ones we love the most, than on a beautiful river trip with Precision Rafting. This is a great way to say thanks mom.
I do hope you can make it.
Best regards, Roger
Release number two is on Friday April 25, and we are ready to go. Each release just gets better and better. What a special place this is, Wild and Scenic, and a great way to get back to nature. I have been doing this now for over 37 years and have not found a more magical river any where.
I would love to share this with you and I know after you see the bald eagles fly over head or the osprey catch a big trout right in front of you, or maybe have a big black bear swim across the river you will understand the importance of getting out in the wild and letting go for an afternoon. All the stress just washes away in the middle of National Falls.
You owe it to your self to come on out and take a ride on the wild side. Just give us a call and we'll make sure you have a great time.
Hope to see you soon.
