Recent Rains cause River to rise

The river will be high volume this weekend
May 16, 17, 18 in 2014 due to recent rainfall.

Please don't over estimate your skills
- or the power behind moving water in a river.

Each and every gallon of water weighs 8 lbs
With a 100 gallons moving forward
- that is  800 lbs of force hitting your boat/body.

Paddle smart with your head in the game, think before you go,
paddle with a buddy, wear your vest at all times on the water

Water doesn't have to be real deep to cause major problems
- a few feet is plenty to be a problem in a pinned kayak/canoe.
