Preparing for Winter SUP (Stand Up Paddling) Season

October 13, 2012. Paddling Expedition Bark SUP in Beaver Pond (Arapaho Bend Natural Area, Fort Collins). Camera: GoPro Hero.

I haven't paddled in my drysuit for years. Last time I used it probably 5 or 6 years ago when paddling in rain and snow on the Dismal River in Nebraska during Thanksgiving Day weekend. The drysuit will work on a SUP in cold season. Of course, it's not so much fun as paddling in shorts. I just need to replace my neck gasket.

    Marek – what do you know about the condition of the South Platte put-ins/take-outs and river courses traditionally used by the Joint Clubs March event? Poudre and RMCC are organizing for 2015 and looking for information

    Thanks!

    I haven’t paddled the South Platte this year yet. Last year, I paddled the river around Kuner and Kersey – no significant changes in river character or access after flooding there. I haven’t seen Riverside Park in Evans after re-opening. I may have some updates in the next couple of weeks.

    Hi Marek – Great pictures! This canoe stabilizer and platform may help if you have a tripod on your Penobscot.

    Hi Larry. I go to southwestern Wyoming where my dad lives and saretm fish with sinners and do some fly fishing. Been doing it every year since I was in third grade. Lots of water up there this year so fishing was slow but still fun. Love to pan fry smaller trout or wrap them in tin foil with some butter and garlic and put them on a grill or in the coals of a camp fire for about 30 minutes. Can’t go wrong with either method.RG
