This is a great opportunity to paddle one of Kentucky's many wild waterways that offers excellent views, swimming holes, and great fishing.

For information on put-in locations, mileage, gauge readings, and fishing refer to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife's website: http://fw.ky.gov/Fish/Pages/Ki...

Make sure to check the gauge levels before putting in to ensure a proper water depth. 

If you have two vehicles, it is ideal to park one at the put-in and one at the take-out, allowing paddlers to float downstream only. If not, it is a great trip to put-in at the Garrison Boat Launch. Be mindful of the other boaters putting in here and keep in mind that upstream is to the left of the put-in (Opposite of the railroad bridge). From this point, paddle upstream taking in the views and abundant wildlife. The creek features many riffs and runs that sometimes require pulling your vessel up. However, there are plenty of sandbars and swimming holes to stop and relax on. These riffs make for a very fun ride when coming back downstream!
