Get Ready for Gualey Season
Fall is just around the corner and that means the faucet will soon turned on at the Summersville dam for some sweet Gualey action. This years season starts on Sept 5th and the BWA will descend on West Virginia for some Upper and Lower high quality H2O. Check out the Gualey release schedule and plan your fall paddling. Gauley fest is a big paddling party for everyone so make sure you have the weekend of Sept 19th blocked out and come help American Whitewater raise money for river conservation. The American Whitewater website has all the info you need to plan a weekend of all things boating!
