It is cold water time, so we paddle along the lakes rim and only in flat water. No fast moving water. Stability is easy on flat water paddling. We go in sit inside kayaks. For customers: for safer stability during cold water time. We ask for participants to be 6'1" or shorter and 230 pounds for less. Sit on top kayaks do better for big and tall individuals. Its cold water time, and its too cold for sit on tops and don't want any chance of tipping.
It is $5 to park at Silverton Reservoir. Please Text Salem Kayak Rentals LLC/ Shannon to participate and receive waiver.
