Let's hope new `river' won't spawn disaster

October 12, 2006|By DAN RODRICKS

McHenry -- Garrett County has some of the prettiest rivers you'll see anywhere: the Youghiogheny, the Savage, the North Branch of the Potomac and the Casselman. They are well known to paddlers, to people who like to fish for trout and to people who just like to look at rivers and allow themselves to be mesmerized by them.

Now they're installing a fifth river up on 3,000-foot Marsh Mountain, if you can believe it, and while it won't ever be stocked with trout, the place should see a steady flow of kayakers starting next spring. At least that's the hope.
