This is the LRC
With a large watershed and a streambed that channelizes well at lower levels, Little River Canyon (LRC) can have enough water for paddling after local rain any time of the year. However, it is almost always above the minimum water level (for at least some section of the canyon) from Dec-May, making it a staple for local paddlers and a destination for boaters from everywhere. Of the runs of similar difficulty in the southeastern United States, only the Russell Fork and the Green are runnable more days per year and no other natural flowing river of similar difficulty runs as often. This video was filmed during the relatively dry Spring of 2014, but still showcases a variety of lines at low and medium water levels.
