Lost AT paddle lower CC

The second pour over on screaming 1/4 mile that looks very boofable, apparently isn't. After getting some serious back air loop time in my burn and side surfing for approx. 2 minutes plus trying to figure out how to get out of the beeeatch, I swam and lost my AT flexi. It has a American whitewater sticker On it and will be attached to the finest case of beer a blue collar man can afford! Let me know if you've seen her!
303. Eight 8 zero - three 585

I was paddling in the play park in clear creek on Thursday(?) and I saw this paddle come over the water i go over pick it up and lo and behold it matches your exact description. I threw it on the far side shore across from the boulders.

I continued to surf and play and another boater comes up and examines it. He claims it is Bart, his friend's paddle. I'm skeptical because it sounds too good to be true. I get washed out of the whole and take out just down river from the main play hole. I go back up to retrieve the found paddle and I find Mr. Other Boater has taken it and walked over to a car where he is talking to someone. I confront him about the paddle and he claims it is the guy he is standing with, Pablo's paddle. The whole thing sounded made up and false but i didn't want to get physical over it. I called him a liar and walked away.

I'm sorry but your paddle is lost forever.

Well if that is true that someone has taken a paddle that isn't theirs, they will have some horrible river karma. Have you seen these guys before? I would like to confront them and just ask to look at the paddle because there is one other characteristic that I can identify it by. Thanks for the heads up.
