Big Creek AR/Ok border 270 west of Mena

Post by sailorfor20 » Wed May 19, 2021 6:34 pm

I live in AR close to the put in for Big Creek in OK near the state line.
Have gotten over 3 inches of rain already....and Big Creek hit 8 ft. (minimum needed) (Usually has plenty of water for awhile after 4 in of rain.)
then dropped right back down to 7.5 when I checked....more rain tonight will bring her up
again and enough rain will hold her for a short while....anyone wanting to paddle this with me,
if the rain works out, can call me at 479.243.9259 It is a beautiful paddle of about 7 miles
in a normally very small creek that will be flooded into the trees alongside the bank. The water will be flying
and good boat control is a must. No big drops, just good fast numerous whitewater...and rocks/boulders all running downhill!
Gauge link: https://waterdata.usgs.gov/usa/nwis/uv?07247250 or look it up at: USGS 07247250 Black Fork below Big Creek nr Page, OK
It's been years since I paddled this so a downed tree might be possible....I will know the current scoop after I run it.
Thanks
