South Saluda River Clean Up Information

We will be cleaning up the South Saluda River at the "Rock Vanes" and the Adopt-A-Mile clean up of the Highway 11/276 right-of-way two mile stretch adjacent to the Rock Vane area and then fish the Rock Vane area of the stream. We will begin at 9:00 am and it should only take 1 to 1.5 hours to complete the clean up. Afterwards, we will fish the rock vane area or go to the Eastatoe River, if the rock vane area is poor fishing. Orange safety vests and plastic bags will be provided (we also have about 10 pick-up "grabbers" for you to use). You should bring and wear gloves. Come join us for this beneficial effort. We always have loads of fun for a very worthwhile cause.
