The take-out for the whitewater portion of the river is located at the old Head of Tide mill site on the Cathance Rd. Parking is accessible at the Head of Tide Park, for both lower and upper paddling.
Whitewater Information: The whitewater on the Cathance is difficult creeking, but all of the runs are easily scoutable on the right, and can be carried if necessary. More information can be found at the American Whitewater web site here: click.
A gauge is spray-painted on the 295 bridge over the Cathance, just downstream from the 201 put-in. Below 2.5 feet the run is bony, while above 4 feet extreme caution should be used. The river runs best in early spring, from ice-out to late April.
