Any good spots on Roanoke river in VA?

Any suggestions.

I just drove over the Roanoke this …
afternoon on I-81.

The water quality didn’t look all that good.

a matter of honor. They list four easy WW sections.

Next step: identify a local paddling group and join up. Locals know best. Guidebooks and national sites don’t give the best info on what is worthwhile.
