Registration is closed
  • This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification (except for level 1 trips when the paddler is not using a spray skirt....if the paddler is wearing a spray skirt on a level 1 paddle, the Wet Exit Certification is REQUIRED).  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 if you intend to wear a spray skirt.  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.

Full Name:Steve Blackwood
Activity Title: Lake Merwin L2, 1-15-22
Date of Activity: 1/15/2022
Narrative: We will meet at Speelyai Bay Park on lake Merwin at 10:00am, ready to paddle by 10:30am. Paddle out of Spealyai Bay follow the shoreline in an easterly direction for 4.5 miles. We will turn around at canyon creek which should have some fast-moving water at this time of year. The water should be mostly flat. We will find a beach to have lunch and return to the put in. There is a $5.00 parking fee, and I am not sure if it is cash or card so bring both.
