Electric Chair Map

Electric Chair comes in around 7.85 on the gauge, flushes out at about 8.15

Directions:

If you are coming on the 401 exit at highway 37, Belleville. Coming from the west turn right from the off ramp and go over the overpass. At the first set of lights turn left onto Cannifton road. For those coming from the east go straight through the lights when you exit the 401 east bound ramp. You are now on Cannifton road. Follow Cannifton road until you see the Stop sign. On your left before the stop sign is Holgate Tire. Turn left between Holgate tire and Rosebush Fuels. The parking is behind holgate tire. Parking is limited so when you arrive and it is full turn left at the stop sign and immediately over the bridge turn left onto gravel drive. You will have to walk down to the damn and put in below and ferry across to river left and the wave. I am not sure how accessible it is from that side though due to cliff.

Description:

Electric Chair is a beautiful play wave, almost like a mini Garb: easy eddy access and safe downstream conditions.

Season:

Similar to Crowe Bridge, the Chair looks like an April phenomenon. According to historic data, it rarely comes up other times of the year.
