Conneaut Creek Sunday March 24
 
We will put in at the covered bridge on State Road at 11:00 and will take out at the covered bridge on Creek Road. It is about a 7-8 mile trip through a beautiful gorge, much like the Grand River. There are a number of 6-12" ledges that we will be passing over, so you will get wet. The water is also likely to be cold, so please dress accordingly.

To get to the put-in, go west on Hatches Corners Road, which is about 2.5 miles south of Interstate 90. Stay on this road for 2.4 miles, then turn right (North) on State Road and go 0.2 miles down the hill to the bridge.

For anyone who is not sure where the put-in is.
On Sunday I am meeting Ron at 9:30am at the rest stop on RT 11 which is north of RT 322 and south of RT 6.

Maybe we can car pool, but no matter what I will be at the rest stop at 9:30 am

Sunday March 24th
 
Brad, Planning on being there even if I leave fiberglass and gelcoat on all those ledges, definitely a trip right for a plastic "buttboat". Looking forward to being on the water again. :11::11:

conditions are favorable
 
Ran over to take a look at creek earlier today. Water flow is strong and free of ice. Was hoping that the sun would have melted some more snow to bring the level up a bit, but mother nature did not cooperate. So, might scrape in a few places, but overall should be a good float. The scenery through the gorge is beautiful. Be warned though that the road to the takeout is in terrible shape due to mud and potholes. I will explore an alternate route that is more vehicle friendly.

If anyone gets this in time, I am unable to go. I got called into work again.

If someone could please be at the rest stop on RT 11 north of 322 to meet ron at 9:30 am.
I try to call him but he already left.

Sorry Mike Danko:17:

Trip report
 
Seven hardy souls made the trip on Conneaut Creek this past Sunday - three canoes and four kayaks. The water level was 1.46 feet and the stream flow was 254 cfs. We scraped a little, but nobody got hung up. Ideal conditions would be about 2.0 feet, which is the normal level for this time of year, and which would really make the many ledges on this stream come to life. But the scenery was beautiful (see the great pictures Rich C posted on the user album tab).

We covered a total of 14.7 miles according to Paul's GPS app (which was longer than originally advertised due to a last minute change in the take out - Center Road instead of Creek Road - and because I underestimated the original trip distance by a good 3 miles).

Very scenic trip, thanks Brad!
