This video shows two trips through Hiwassee Shoals with different crews.
Hiwassee Shoals is a maze of shallow rocks and ledges with an afternoon glare to test a guides memory. The river leaving the doldrums gradually becomes shallow. The primary line begins near the center of the river negotiating a series of gate rocks and working river right to follow the current. Towards the end of the long rapid ledges begin to increase in height.
