Where are the good floating areas? Where do you drop off and pick up...Been looking to do some floating so I don't want anything too crazy intense as I will be in just a tube.

you can drop in around Massengill farm in Chuckey which will put you below the shoals. Float to Ebenezer church, not too bad of a float. Just watch for old metal and concrete from the old bridge (near the new bridge) on Chuckey Pike.

I have also heard stories about the dam repair on the river. I can't remember where I heard the stories from though. It was along the lines of catfish being near the size of a school bus. I'm really sure it's a really big tale, but it sure made for an interesting story!

There's a great indian history on that river and I know ETSU is doing a lot of work on that upper portions. I've heard some of the talks they give and apparently it's a sacred place to the Cherokee around 1500 to 1700. From what I understood, they said they could research the Cherokee parts from those dates for the next 10 years and still not know the whole story, that many Cherokee sites..but I am glad someone is going to prove what I've thought for years

I lost a friend there a few years back. The nona-chun-nee (Cherokee for rushing waters) has claimed many a life.

You must have talked to Ronald Winkle on that one. Hell he catch a #6lb.cat in turn into size of a bus in a hour after he caught it. That man could sure tell some good stories.Good fellow though.

Actually its translated from the Cherokee word Na’na-tlu gun’yi which means spruce tree place. My source is that I'm Cherokee and I speak the language I don't know what nona chun nee means but it's not any part of the Cherokee language that is just an old folklore that people made up, although I will say rushing waters or river of death is much scarier than what it really means lol

The name nolichuckey comes from a Cherokee phrase that means "rushing waters" it is a phrase from a sentence in Cherokee as like in a explanation and not so much as a name. Tsalagis hiwonisgi

The Nolichucky river begins at the confluence of the Toe and Cane rivers in North Carolina.The signature whitewater run is from Poplar,NC to Chestoa,upstream of the old Chucky Trading Post.From Chestoa down it's no more than Class 2 rapids at normal water levels..... VERY fun at 10,000+CFS.... huge quarter mile long wavetrains,8-10' haystacks,very sticky holes you can surf for hours.... some a little too sticky:have a bombproof combat roll! At normal water levels it's a pastoral float all the way to the lake.Minus the dam above Asheville Hwy., which has been run TWICE!Both times at extreme river-left.I have awesome footage of both runs.One of which hasn't been uploaded....yet.If you don't possess skills commensurate with water levels,STAY HOME!
