Registration is closed

This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification.  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip. 
 With a low tide at 10:00am we will put in at the Knight Park boat ramp and ride the flooding tide upriver, find a nice lunch spot and make our way back to the boat ramp looking for eagles and seals and river otters along the way.
