The Annual Tellico River Cleanup was held this weekend at one of my favorite rivers. The event is a cooperative gathering of several clubs and groups that enjoys the beauty of this scenic roadside gem.

I encourage a little bit of clean up with every river adventure for increased river Karma and a cleaner future for everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the Clean up boaters took to the water for some Whitewater fun.

The Tellico River is located near the town of Tellico Plains, TN. It is a three hour drive from Atlanta.

An enjoyable river level for those wanting to give it a try for the first time is 1.6 – 1.9.  The level in the photos  is 1.8ft.

 

The Tellico River is packed with creek boating fun. Boofs are plentiful!!

Jesse Hebden has the boof mastered. Jesse is one of the many great Georgia Canoeing Association (GCA) instructors ready to help you with some training.  Gapaddle.com for this summers training schedule.
