Canoe and Kayak News for 2008

Kayak Photographers Start Your Uploads

It is time for the 2008 Canoe & Kayak Magazine online paddling photo contest.

The categories are whitewater and flatwater. Any type of boat can be used - kayaks, rafts, inflatables, fishing kayaks or canoes. Lots of great prizes are being offered in all categories. For more details visit their webpage.

Kayaking in Kansas?

In more good news for local area paddlers, the Wichita City Council in nearby Southern Kansas is also considering an Arkansas River Access Plan that includes about 20 new paddler launches from Hutchinson to the Oklahoma border! The vote is planned for Feb 5th.

The first weekend in February looks like a decent one for paddling. I think I may try to get the boats out on Dripping Springs Lake or maybe the Deep Fork River.

Got a favorite spot for winter kayaking around Oklahoma...leave a comment on the blog and share your knowledge!
