A couple Oklahoma rivers are up, but conditions are still very dry here in the Sooner State.

However, the Spring waters are flowing well in Arkansas these days. Great Ozark scenic rivers like the Buffalo River and the Ouachita River are flowing well for kayaking trips. Thrilling whitewater favorites like the Cossatot River and the Mulberry River are also runnable these days.
  • Tulsa area kayak fishermen are meeting up this weekend at Sequoyah State Park.- CANCELED
  • The Oklahoma Paddle Sports Association is hosting a Camping / Paddling get together at Lake Thunderbird’s West Hog Creek Campground.

As usual, Spring brings a number of great paddling events like the OGAR.

The Ozark Greenways Adventure Race will be held on Saturday, May 21, 2011.

The Ozark Greenways Adventure Race (OGAR) is a sprint adventure race (8-14 hours) which features running, trekking, mountain biking, orienteering and paddling. The Ozark Mountain Paddlers will be providing safety support for the paddling leg of this event. Learn more about the race at

Thanks, but there is no chance of me entering any kayak races. If I was in a hurry, I would take a motor boat!

Ha ha. I have been kayaking for a while now and my friends keep asking me why I don't start to race. I always say that I race with myself and the fishes that I still didn't catch.

Kayak racing is also not for me. I kayak for the fun and relaxing part of it, taking life slowly and enjoying the view around wonderful kayaking places. Racing will just stress me out.
