Pre Ranger Paddle

This paddle will be to scout the traditional paddle into Middleville.  The river has been up and this section is forecasted to continue dropping thru the weekend so we will be taking a look at what is left behind and open up any blocked areas as best we came.  We will also  make notes of any new trouble spots that we can not open up.

I will prefer all paddlers have experience with high water.  Safety gear and cold water equipment will be required. 

I have no idea what we will be facing as we head down the river.  We may not have any issues to deal with and arrive in Middleville in record time, or we may spend a lot of our time opening up 1 or more jams.  I am planning on some work at the Paul Henry Trail, only because that has always been a troubled area right under the bridge. 

So plan to get out of your boat once in a while to move or remove limbs and logs.

Spring is here!

    This had to be a record. We collected a row boat and an IPhone, both worked. Just couldn't get the saw to work to cut the jam out. Thanks Valdis.
