The river is wide in most places and there are a few houses along the river. There was a log across one narrow place, but it will probably be washed away in time and it can be avoided going right.

My Report:

Spring Creek GA 11-06-2015

Trip lead by Ed and Marylyn with 7 others on Nov. 6, 2015. The weather was hot and the gnats were bad at the put-in (US 84 bridge Brinson, GA) and real bad at the takeout (Smith Landing). There was a good current until you got past the midway point and then the backup from the lake slowed the current down. The last few miles were hot and slow.

The Iron City, GA gauge http://waterdata.usgs.gov/ga/nwis/uv?site_no=02357000 shows that the river crested at 6.8 ft. and 650 cfs while we were on the river. The Median cfs is 98 and the Mean is 128, while the Max is 742.

There were lots of the small aster in bloom along the river and some hemp vine, with remnants of blue mist flower.

Got a glimpse of one deer, one alligator, one snake, several kingfishers, blue heron and other little birds and turtles along the river. Ed took a close look at a rare turtle he said occurred in only three rivers in North Florida.
