I just got an important email from Matt Woodson the current leader of the Red Dirt Paddlers.
The May 9, 2007 Kayak Demo Day in OKC has been POSTPONED because there is too much rain. there are several safety concerns with floating the Oklahoma River when it is at flood stage.
Keep your ears open for the rescheduled date for the Kayak Demo, and if you're going paddling, be safe.
With the high water and windy conditions this weekend, Lake Eufaula was a little rough for our partucular brand of kayaking. However, the weather was warm and we needed the excercise... so we paddled a small slough just off the main channel of the North Canadian River. Locally, the area is known as the watermelon patch.
Dianne caught a nice sized crappie and I got a few good pictures of beaver and birds. Over all, it is a nice little fishing hole and just a few short miles from our new river lot.
