June 8th Fishing Paddle Trip



 

Date:  Saturday, June 8, 2024
Location: To be determined. If you sign up, we will notify you of the exact put-in and put-out spots closer to the date.

Cost: Free

 

Sign-up for our second group trip of the 2024 paddle season is here! This trip will be focused on fishing.

 

FOMR will:

• get permission from the landowners​

• provide volunteers to paddle as front-runners and to follow behind the group​

• give you written driving directions to the put-in and to the take-out

• coordinate the shuttle of the group’s vehicles

 

 PARTICIPANTS will:

•  provide your own boats, paddles, fishing gear and required life vests and required whistles/horns.

• self-assess your suitability for paddling.

HOW SHUTTLING VEHICLES WORKS:

 

You drive your vehicle to the put-in site and drop your boat and gear there. We’ll have someone stay with your boat and gear while all the rest of us drive our vehicles to the take-out and you park there. Then we will drive you back to the put-in. We all get organized and launch as a group. After we complete the trip, you load your boats and gear to your awaiting vehicle and are free to take off to the rest of your day. We will need a couple people to volunteer to drive paddle trip volunteers back to their vehicles at the put-in right at the end.

 

RISK AND RESPONSIBILITY

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO REVIEW OUR 2024 FLOAT TRIP SAFETY AND LIABILITY DOCUMENT

FOMR’s paddle trip program offers opportunities for "common adventurers” to come together to paddle on a river that has previously been somewhat inaccessible to the public. Our trip volunteers are not required to have any specific training—they are just FOMR members who are willing to help others experience the River. They are not group leaders or guides.

 

You as a participant are responsible for determining if you are prepared for this particular trip on this river. Paddling can be quite dangerous. All trip participants assume full responsibility for their own safety. If you would like to discuss a trip’s suitability for your skills, feel free to contact Savannah at info@friendsofthemiddleriver.org.

 

We have a number of materials we have developed for you to self-evaluate your paddle skills and to educate yourself about common hazards of river paddling available via our website. We encourage you to review these:

 

DEAL-BREAKING WEATHER AND RIVER CONDITIONS

 

Paddle events— by their nature— are subject to change or cancellation due to water levels, weather or other natural hazardous conditions. Once you sign up, and are notified that you are registered, we will email you with more details about exactly where to meet, or if any of the trip details change or if the trip is postponed or cancelled.
