Info wanted on Crooked Creek (Around Yellville)

Post by Al Donaldson » Tue Jan 27, 2015 10:29 am

Folks:

Does anyone have good info regarding access conditions and recommended flow levels for Crooked Creek? It appears that we might be headed down there at some point during our March paddling in the Ozarks this year.

Thanks in advance.

Al, if memory correct some time ago there was a long thread on this creek. It might show up on some searches.

I did the search but found no useful water level or flow info. We'll keep trying...

I like it 10.5-11.5 with flow around 150-200 cfs on the kelly slab gage. Expect to drag some below 10.5.

I've posted a few trip reports from last year on my blog. PM me there if you have specific questions.

Al, Crooked's a dandy. Glad y'all are considering it.
You come too.
