    Would anyone be interested in running the Salmon Tamworth Section <img loading=:” title=”Question” /> The level is slightly higher on the gauge than last saturday <img loading=” title=”Very Happy” /> I have been emailing various people but no firm commitments yet.

    Other than that I would be up to paddling local to Barrie area with 150km that would be in my skill range in my open boat:

    Lower Head – East of Seebright

    16 Mile Creek – Oakville area (never been on that one yet)

    I would definitely be in for paddling local on sunday as well.

    Ok Val … now you know :lol:

    Colin,
    The other run you should check out is the Lower Black. It doesn’t have the big drops of Beaver Creek, but lots of fun 2/3 rapids. There should be folks on it this weekend.

    Thom … thanx … i would be open to that as well.

    Never been on that one … all I know is Gonzo told me not to do the Upper Black.

    Anyone doing the Lower Black … any details on putin/takeout would be appreciated.

    I just want to get out and paddle new rivers.

    I was told the Tamworth section was the Upper Salmon … perhaps I am wrong …. can anyone clarify this.

    Anyway we are doing the Tamworth section on saturday.

    The section of the Salmon north of Tamworth is known as the Upper Salmon. There is a section downriver (South) that is known as the Lower Salmon. Lower Salmon is primarily class I/II rapids, not nearly as much fun as Upper Salmon. I am not aware of any sections closer to hwy 7.

    So Colin, are we paddling the upper or the lower? Shuttle up river or down river?

    We are paddling the lower Salmon River Tamworth section.

    Technically we will be shuttling up the river as we get to the takeout first, suit up, moves boats around as necessary and go to the putin.
