Reno HTTD #4

natefry wrote 73 days ago:


Bad Weather Wed made it’s return this week with cool winds, clouds, and some rain drops.  Even so we had a great time surfing the competition wave at the Reno Whitewater Park.  Flows have finally come down to the normal peak flow range of around 3-4,000 cfs instead of 6,000 cfs it has been for several months.  This made for a great, friendly wave hole for blunts, cartwheels, clean spins, loops, and mcnasties.  Kayaking was followed by Ninkasi beverages and prizes from our sponsors including Accent Paddles, IR, Astral, Kokatat, Effort and Mountain Khakis.  

In two weeks we will be having our final HTTD of the year in Reno and we have a Large IR Drytop as part of the Raffle, so plan on coming out for that.  Information on location will follow.

See you soon…

APE's LogoWhitewater Class I-II

We will meet at Riverside Park in Elizabethton,TN behind the Ballpark at 3:00 P.M. on Bi-weekly Saturdays this summer!

Please be prepared for cold water by bringing warm gear to wear (no matter how hot the weather is).  Contact Debbie if you need anything or have questions.

Also we stop for a break about half way so don’t forget your snacks! We are usually off the water by 7:00 P.M. or so and then we can go for dinner in town. :-)

January in the Gorge

tommygunn wrote 937 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….
