Video captured via GoPro Hero 3 and 3+ cameras. Tellico peaked at 6.8 feet and 3000cfs. V8 (Microgorge) was off the chain, Reconnect was darn right ugly with that tree, and The Icing was pretty awesome at the end. Level was good but wondered if more water would have produced less porting?
Wildcat Creek is a feeder creek to the lower portion of the Tellico and exits a mile or so upstream from the Tellico Kats Deli off Cherohala Skyway. The Tellico level had increase due to the amount of rain the night before to 6.7/3000cfs. My friend Wes Brown had mentioned Wildcat creek as one of the options if we got enough rain. There was some data provided off American WhiteWater but was dated 2008. There were no videos produced other than one where some guys hiked up to the last rapid. With a mile hike in the wilderness, little information, and the threat of downed trees everywhere we took a chance. This video was the result of our little adventure that ended up paying off.
