This from a post on Facebook about a week ago regarding Foster Park to Rotary Park on the Mahoning: "We just did that part Sunday. No dragging on the bottom, but we had to portage two times in kayaks. Lots of trees down."

I've done the lower half of this run at 2.45 on Pricetown gage with no scraping. Not sure what paddle zero is.

All of Little Beaver Creek will be a scrapefest at its current level of 2.4. Some say that for the whitewater section below Sprucevale 3.0 is paddling zero, but I personally like it to be 3.5 minimum. Check American Whitewater to see what they say. For the upper reaches paddling zero is around 5.0. But this can be a little deceiving since the gage is so far downstream. Be aware of a low water bridge in Lisbon. It should be scouted before putting on the river because the current is swift beneath it.
