I am open minded, it could have been Anglers, or even a random 4 wheeler, but why take the paddles?
At this point what I figure is that it was probably some "out-of-towner" who doesn't use mountainbuzz, and wouldn't be that familiar with Brown's.
Any local that came across it would have left it, or called to return it.
A "visitor" who was familiar with the canyon would know that you guys take pictures there, and should call if they took it or post a "found gear" thread.
Only someone who wasn't from the area, and doesn't have the river community mentality, would have taken it...and if that is the case you probably won't get it back.
Eventually river karma will come back to them...in the mean time keep snapping awesome pictures of me surfing zoom. sorry
