Kayak Shed

Super excited to say that our local paddling shop, Kayak Shed, is joining us for this years events.  Kayak Shed was super excited to help out with our spring, summer and fall events.

What events?  We are working on scheduling monthly class II (maybe one class III rapid) paddles for those who have just gotten into paddling.  Or for those who have been around a little while and want to share some of their knowledge with new paddlers.

In addition we are looking at a “fun” downriver race for newer paddlers.  This will be a relatively short (less than mile) downriver race.  This will most likely be the last 1/2 mile of the lower Klickitat held in conjunction with a beginner paddle.  While we are all love competition, the point will be to get out and have some fun.  There will be some prizes for just showing up.

Keep watching this blog and our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/World-Kayak-Pacific-Northwest/1550594721886158 , for updates.

January in the Gorge

tommygunn wrote 157 days ago:


It’s January in the Gorge.  What does that mean?  Well every year is different.  Sometimes it means snowy roads and hills.  Sometimes it means frozen rain which makes our roads a nightmare to drive on and freezes to the trees which causes them to break and fall into the river. Sometimes it means sun, and other times it means rain.  This January it means many of our “winter rivers” have come in due to rain and a period of unseasonable warm weather. It also brought our “nothing” cloud which is a gray inversion level of gloom that blocks out the sun for weeks.

This weekend it meant a kayak run on the local lower Hood River (Tucker to the Marina) with a fun low water level of 4.5 feet.  A fun technical class III run.  A cold 37 degree day, but no east wind (nothing says cold like a frozen wind out of the east).  The Hood has been runnable for over a week now.  Normally a spring or late fall fun, this year the Hood has been delivering.

The weekend also meant a drive over to Washougal to catch a low water run of the lower section.  Another class III run (unless you add Big Eddy rapid which is class IV) but day and night different from the Hood.  Instead of continuous technical rocky rapids (the Hood) this offers long flatwater sections with short drops.  But even at the low water level there are some good surfing waves at this level. This time a 40 degree day but it always seems warmer in Washougal..

With these rivers hitting their low levels, it will be interesting to see what the weather does to the rivers for next weekend….
