This will be a SLOW floating paddle....I am in no hurry at all...

Distance: Dam to Happy Hallow is only 5 miles...

Fishing, trolling for Trout...be sure you have your fishing license!!!

 so bring along all of your fishing gear and cooler of snacks, drink etc., dont forget your license, they do check it at Happy hallow and perhaps a few other fave spot along this stretch of Caney.

dress in layers, bring along a small cooler of snacks, drink etc.


We will MEET AT PUT-IN AT 1:00, CANEY FORK RIVER CENTER HILL DAM...

ALL DRIVERS WILL FOLLOW ME TO TAKE-OUT POINT AT...HAPPY HALLOW FOR A 5 MILES PADDLE ( I NEED TO GET OUT AT HAPPY HALLOW)

BETTY'S ISLAND...IS ANOTHER 3 MILES UP RIVER FOR A TOTAL OF 8 MILES PADDLE...

WE WILL CARPOOL BACK TO PUT IN TO START OUT ADVENTURE ;)


THIS STRETCH OF WATER IS COLD....river is great for beginner paddlers, very wide and calm...it is an 5 miles trip with generation it will be a short float...

bring a dry bag with extra change of clothes if needed.

LIFE JACKET...is a must have, fine is $250 per person found with out one, you have to have it on your boat.

i will have extra kayak available to lend out for a small contribution of $25 ea. or you can rent one at outfitter for $35 (OUTFITTER DOES NOT GO TO BETTY'S ISLAND)

    Sorry for the late message. My fiance now wants to come as well. Is there a way we could get another kayak...we have 2 dogs so he would be taking one in his. So sit on with more room would be better. Please let us know. Thank you. Also do you have snother tandem? Just curious in case another girlfriend wants to come as well!
