Default French Creek, May 20

Hi everybody. We will be doing a paddle down the beautiful French Creek from Utica to Franklin on Sunday May 20. We'll meet at the boat launch on Elk St in Franklin about 10am. From there we will try to take as few cars as possible up to Utica. The launch in Utica has been much improved with a more defined parking lot that has been graveled and the cement launch pad has been cleaned up. The downside is that it's a smaller area to park in.
The water level (2ft min) shouldn't be a problem because it looks like rain on and off during the week. It was 2.8 yesterday when I went up there. I'll keep an eye on it this week. We can always paddle the Allegheny if it drops too low on the French.
I won't cancel the run because of rain, but I would for thunderstorms. Again, I'll keep an eye on weather and make the call later in the week. Check back in on Saturday for any updates.
