Warning to Stay Out of the Rappahannock River

If you have driven around the area and region in the last few days, you've probably seen how high the Rappahannock is.
Local river steward Bill Micks says if it is ever over the banks, muddy, full of debris or moving fast, stay out. It only talks a few seconds for you or your friends to get into trouble. Already a group of canoeists did not heed the warning and got stuck over the weekend.
Always plan before you head out to the river and make sure the water levels are safe. A more than 30 mile spanse from Remington to Culpeper and Fredericksburg is listed on riverfriends.org.
