To put in under the bridge you can either go upstream, which is the way I went, or downstream. There is a low head dam immediately downstream that has a portage point to the bottom of the falls. This would take you to the Camp Jordan area and beyond.
I went upstream for about 3 miles. In places the water is swift (I was paddling against the current), having to either paddle very hard to get through the riffle or get out and pull my kayak through (don't bring your good kayak, there are shallows). I paddled for two hours into the current and through the riffles and then turned around and made it back in about an hour.
This is a clean looking part of the creek, some farmland on each side and the fishing would probably be good if you stopped in a slow moving section or tied off to something.
There are strainers and narrow rapids. It's worth a quick trip. This will be a nice place to paddle in the fall.
I wish fishermen and other users would pick up after themselves. If you paddle here (or anywhere) see if you can pay it forward by picking up after someone else.
