A MESSAGE FROM THE BLOUNT COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT:
"ALL DEATHS ON THE RIVER INVOLVED PEOPLE WITH NO LIFEJACKET.
These web pages are based on the book Alabama Canoe Rides and Float Trips by John Foshee. Used with permission of The University of Alabama Press. This book can be purchased by clicking here
Information about each section of the river is available by clicking on that section of the map or on the links above. Each section's page contains a google map and a description from John Foshee's book about that stretch of the river.

Though we have begun this project using John Foshee's book, our hope is that individuals who have knowledge about any section of the river will help us keep information updated.

The USGS maintains a gauge at the Hwy 79 bridge near Cleveland monitoring the river flow and level. The data it collects are available at their web site:

These pages are in memory of Allysa Huffstutler, who died in June 2013 while rafting in section 3 of the river. Our hope is that the public will become educated to both the beauty and perils of the river.
