multiday in the southeast, in April, doesn't get any better than that, because you're doing your trip then, you can get on some seasonal stuff

in wv:
check out Greenbrier (and if you get plenty of water check running anthonys creek into the greenbrier)- american whitewater website, Canoeing and Kayaking west virgina guidebook, state website about greenbrier river trail,

the lower williams into the gauley, just make sure you take out above curtain bridge on the gauley, after that point the river turns decidedly class III, aw website, and Canoeing and kayaking west virginia

the down elk below webster springs, put in below sewer plant rapid to miss a class three. I know a sewer plant sounds gross but this is a really nice stretch of remote river- again aw site and Canoeing and Kayaking wv, 600 cfs should be about right, don't attempt above 800 cfs unless your skills are very solid- trip gets easier as you go down stream

Tn: the upper reaches of Clear Creek down to Jett,
aw website

Ky Rockcastle River- be prepared to portage the "beach narrows" and the narrows

all runs somewhat remote, likely to run in the spring, but plan an alternative in case of dry weather, the greenbrier has the least whitewater out of all the choices but might be the easiest to plan and holds water well

Have fun!
