Laid Back Sunday Social Paddle - Rocky Gorge - Scott's Cove

Laid Back Sunday Social Paddle from Scott's Cove on Rocky Gorge

 

 

Finish off the weekend is style with this CKA social paddle.  Bring a snack for yourself and perhaps something to share with the group for a break at about midpoint in the paddle.  This will be an easy, approximately 8 mile laid back Sunday paddle which should have us off the water by 2:00 or 2:30 in time for a late lunch in the area if anyone is interested.

We'll be launching from the Scott's Cove Recreation Area on Rocky Gorge Reservoir promptly at 10:30 AM.  Plan to arrive with plenty of time to have your boat and gear ready to be on the water by then.

Rocky Gorge Reservoir is owned by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC). To paddle here you MUST purchase a $6.00 day use permit or a $70.00 season permit. With over 13 miles of water between Triadelphia and Rocky Gorge Reservoirs and 7 different kayak launch sites we'll visit the WSSC properties often during the season and I suspect regular paddlers in the area will find that the season pass will pay for itself quickly. You can purchase day or season permits on line and print them out at home. Look under permits at the WSSC website located here http://www.wsscwater.com

There are rental kayaks available for this paddle at special weekend price of $40.00. Please answer the rental question when you RSVP to request one.

    I had to do the anti-rain dance in my sleep all night to get today to turn out as nice as it did. Rocky Gorge was beautiful this morning in the foggy mist. We had the biggest class of newbies ever on a paddle today and they all fit in great. Matt is becoming famous for his hot dogs and Larry's contribution was over the top. Thanks for coming everyone

    Wonderful trip! It was nice to meet all of you. I enjoyed the paddle spending the day on the water with a great group of people. I was amazed at what you randomly put together for a lunch break.

    Great folks, great workout! It's 7:30p and I'm just up after my first unscheduled nap of what will probably be many this evening. Thanks to all for a wonderful outing.

    The Fearless Forecast got amazingly better while we slept. It now calls for the sun to come out around 11:00 and virtually no chance of rain today until about 1:00 PM.

    Sounds fun. Don't think that I have ever paddled here. I would like to join you for this paddle on Sunday. Have my own boat and years of experience. This is my first Meet-Up event of any type.

      Looking forward to it. Can't make Saturday, but still planning on Sunday. Bought a permit as indicated in trip description.

      May 16, 2013

  • Jane B.

    Chuck, I will need the rental also. This really sounds like fun!

    May 14, 2013

  • Mary B.

    Will need a rental since I'm still waiting to get my roof rack installed. Thx

    May 13, 2013

    • Chuck

      Hey Mary Beth - Got you covered on the rental. Bring your roof rack parts along. Get there a little early or stay a little late and I can put it on for you. I am a Thule expert and have the shirt to prove it but I can usually figure out the other racks too.

      1 · May 14, 2013

    • Mary B.

      Thanks, Chuck. It's the parts I'm waiting for - on backorder for weeks! Can't wait to have my own gear. See you Sunday

    50 years ago I frequented the trails of the southern shore of the gorge by bicycle and on foot. This will be my first time on the northern shore and seeing Scott's Cove.

    May 14, 2013

    • Chuck

      I don't remember you looking like you could have done anything 50 years ago when you used to come to the paddles with Bean

    • Bill H.

      Thanks for the compliment! And I'm more fit now than when you knew me! The downside is that I seem outwardly younger than my 64-a-week-from-Thursday age probably because of a lifetime struggle with undiagnosable low metabolism. But every year of the last decade has been a stronger and better year!
