    Exceptional day! Great paddling fun!

    Day time temperature was 14 C with some cloud and later on overcast with periods of strong wind at times. The fast flow of 29 cms made an excellent level for rapids, longer sections of bouncy wave trains with some fun hay stacks, fun surfing and lots of eddies. A few tandems and solo boats ran the ledge and it was exciting watching their successful runs – congratulations! No shortage of splashing water inside the boats requiring a stop to empty or bail water.

    There was 14 members, four tandems, five solo boats and one kayak.

    Started shuttle at 10:30 and returned at 11:30. On the river a little after noon and ended the trip at 3:45.

    As usual we saw many juvenile bald eagles and matured bald eagle, osprey, King Fisher and deer’s along the way.
