Paddle and potluck Lower Yahara, Stebbinsville Reservoir to Murwin park, Fulton

You need your own kayak or canoe, and supplies to participate in this event.

Join me for a fun filled 2-3 hour trip down the lower Yahara River to Murwin Park. The water moves quickly here. It will be an easy paddle.

We will meet at the Stebbinsville dam launch site at 10:00 am and shuttle cars. Expect to get on the water at approximately 10:30 am. If you arrive late you may have to catch up to the group. Regardless of where you park your car (launch site or exit point) we will have vehicles available for shuttling purposes. Don't be concerned with vehicle shuttling when traveling with this group. Our shuttle methodology isn't an exact science but works well for us (common sense and cooperation).

We will meet at 911 Mildred Ave. Edgerton after the paddle for a potluck. (Exit 163 off I-90 at the Newville exit) I will provide plates, silverware and napkins. BYOB. I have a grill if you wish to bring something to grill If you want to drop off your dish beforehand, I will not leave my house until 9:30.

More details: the launch site is at the old Stebbinsville dam, (Launch Site:[masked] W. Stebbinsville Rd, Edgerton, WI 53534,Longitude: [masked] Latitude:[masked]) Our exit point is in Fulton, WI (Exit point: Murwin Park,Longitude: [masked] Latitude:[masked]). The launch point and exit point may not have restrooms. Bring proper supplies. There is parking for up to 12 vehicles at Murwin Park.

The Madison Kayaking Meetup Group is not an outfitter. We are not insured. We do not provide watercraft. We are a group of members/friends that get together and enjoy paddling all kinds of water, with different experience levels. Therefore, when you paddle/travel with us you do so at your own risk. Your participation is your acceptance of this waiver. - Thank you, Victoria Carter

    The 20 participants quickly broke into two groups but we arrived at the takeout within 15 minutes of each other. The temps were hot and the Yahara River was very shallow in several spots requiring you to get out of your Kayak and drag it 10-20' and then get back in. Not bad though. Good organization and a friendly bunch of people. Gathered later at the home of an organizer for Potluck and further interesting conversation.

    Lots of nice scenery and wildlife! I'm a beginner on rivers and everyone was so nice and helpful. Great group! I'm sorry I couldn't make the potluck but I'm sure it was a lot of fun!

    I give Vicky five paddles for staging an amazing trip down the Yahara. Her picnic afterwards was just perfect.

    My husband Andy and I won't be at the potluck, though I am sure it would be great food. Thank you for the invite. (We have some company coming later in the day from out of state.)

    Just an update, it would be great if people could let me know how many are coming to my house after the paddle? I am having turkey burger and I will make a pasta salad. If you would like to bring something for yourself or to share, I leave that up to you :) BROB and if you have chairs that would be good too.
    I can be reached here or by phone,[masked]
    Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone, even if the river isn't flowing well, the water will feel nice :)

    So I will provide some hamburgers, turkey burgers (unless i can forget the hamburgers and just do turkey burgers :) ) some hot dogs for the kids unless you guys want something else, pasta salad and a dessert of some kind. I have a dog but I am going to take her to my daughters that day in case the kids coming are afraid of them. Please bring what you wish to drink and a dish to pass if you would like. I have condiments also. I have some lawn chairs. hope to see many of you!
