  Current River Watershed: Water Quality
Approximately 593 stream miles and 45 impoundment acres within the Current River Watershed are classified and have designated beneficial uses as presented in Tables G and H of the Rules of the Department of Natural Resources Division 20-Clean Water Commission Chapter 7-Water Quality (Table Wq01) (MDNR 2000c).
As part of the River Use Management Plan, the Jacks Fork and the Current River were divided into zones with the establishment of maximum levels of canoe use designated as low (up to 10 canoes per mile), medium (11-40 canoes per mile), and high (41-70 canoes per mile)(Figure Wq03).
According to the River Use Management Plan, over 85% of the canoeists floating the rivers obtain canoes from concessionaires Thus, the primary method of the NPS for attaining target levels of canoe use is by limiting the number and distribution of canoes to each concessionaire by zones and districts (NPS 1989).

 River Diving Technique
Where we most often play, there is an erosion barrier break-wall along the entire length of the river; the current is 2-10 knots and boat and fishing traffic is heavy; a direct ascent to the surface is not a desirable option.
It is used by experienced river divers diving near shore in intense current with a restrictive barrier along the shore.
The cardinal rule of river diving is "keep your fins lower than your ass." When moving in intense current near the bottom of the river, move with legs spread (like a "spider") and drag your fins along the bottom.
