    A great paddle on a beautiful river. We caught it on the perfect weekend, the weather was great and we had the river to ourselves. We had 9 paddlers Saturday, three campers and were joined by 5 others for Sunday. A good ...

    Three Rivers to Butte La Rose. Three day trip under really good conditions following the passage of a spring cold front. The river was just below 30" at the Simmesport gauge which gave us a pretty good current and north ...

    Nice, easy, slow paddle with a couple of caveats. Most of this paddle is in abandoned oil field canals, so paddling is straight with little to no winding banks or shade. Nice scenery though. As long as you stay in the ma...

    Hwy. 26 river gauge level at 4.4' made this paddle doable. Any lower and a lot of time would be spent dealing with downed trees across creek. Put in at Hwy. 377 was easy, all though slippery. Just ask my paddle buddy as ...
