Narrative: The Columbia river is high! What this does is to allow us to paddle in areas not usually available. Please join me in paddling through the trees, working on your boating skills as you maneuver around obstacles in your path, to me the most enjoyable part of paddling. High tide Sunday is at 9:49 so let’s plan on being on the water by 8:30 to take advantage to the higher water
