I had to drive across five states to get there, but it was worth it. I made a last minute decision to join a CTAMC trip on the Mongaup River near Port Jervis, NY. We ran the section from the Rio Dam to the Delaware River - about 3 miles. It was a single barrel release - about 600 cfs on the Mongaup gage. At this level, the river is class II/easy class III. Rock dodging was the order of the day, and there were plenty of eddies and surf waves to catch. The rapids are a little tougher on the second half of the trip with the largest at the Route 97 bridge and at the confluence with the Delaware. Iím told that a double barrel release is about 1,000 cfs with lots of long wave trains.
We did a lot of playing on the way down. Spent about 3 hours on the river - arrived at the take out just as it started raining. The paddle time to drive time ratio is not good on this one, but you could do 2 runs, and there are releases all summer.
