Lost Paddle on Bailey Stretch

Lost a Red Werner Powerhouse paddle in the second of 4 falls on Friday 10-1. It does have my name and number on it. I know it would suck to bring it out from there, but any information about it's whereabouts would be very helpful.

Sadly, no extra paddle. I carried all the way from 4 falls to a bit below deer creek rapid. A group of Boaters ran in to me there and hooked me up with a breakdown. Thank you very much JDHog for the loner paddle.

For future reference, four falls is pretty close to the road. If you hike upstream on river right you will go through private property and get to the road and could maybe hitch there back to the put in. If its a broken paddle and you don't want to mess with private property, then maybe a long hike to the takeout is an option worth considering. If you have injuries at four falls, I wouldn't hesitate to go upstream to the road. Its probably less than a mile to the road upstream vs. 6ish miles to the takeout.

You can see it clearly if you do a google earth scout.

I don't want to sound like a dick but somebody in your group should have a breakdown. Bailey is kinda a wilderness run, it would suck to get trapped out there because you didn't want an extra 2 pounds in your boat. And Ian great info.

Just use one the Bailey loaner paddles. Seems like I see one every time i'm in there. Which reminds me, I'm blown away by how many people dont put names on their paddles.

So good in there on Saturday!! Nice meetin and paddlin with RDNEk and posse.

I bought a breakdown after breaking a paddle then using a "Bailey loaner" to paddle out.

I think break down paddles are over rated.

Give the poor guy a break...he not only lost his paddle and carried his boat for 4 miles but he had to paddle out with Crazy Nate which is punishment enough for anyone.

I will remember that next time you break your paddle!

Turtle broke 2 paddles in Gore this weekend.
