Trip Reports

June 13 - Boardman Forks to Brown Bridge Landing

 | Published on 6/13/2015

Thanks to Harold Lassers for planning a paddle on my favorite section of the Boardman River from The Forks to Brown Bridge Landing this morning, and sharing his tandem canoe so I could try paddling with my broken ribs. No pain except the first few "draws", and was able to paddle with a kayak or canoe paddle. I am very lucky to have such great friends! No one else on the river yet, except a Trout Unlimited class of fly fishermen & women at Ranch Rudolph, but the W MI Kayak Club (Meet-Up group of 35) was getting ready to put-in after they finished their shuttle. Afterwards, we enjoyed a late breakfast/lunch at Center Street Café, Harold & Pam, Fred & Judy, Marcy & John, Bob Fitch & Sara.
