Help Recovering SUP from Poudre

I was doing my annual Mother's Day paddle on the Filter Plant Run on the Poudre (I'm a Mama of a 3 year old) and my SUP got pushed in a strainer. I managed to get out but the SUP is pinned in the strainer and leashed to the tree above water. It's still there as of 3:00pm. I really need a hand of some skilled boaters to help extract. I can offer beer and good karma to you. Any suggestions or help out there in Mountainbuzzland?

Sarah, sorry I cant help retrieve your board but please call the authorities and let them know that your board is stuck and you are safe so they do not launch a rescue mission looking for the owner of the board.

A good call- thanks. Contacted the sheriff and made a report. Much appreciated!

Sarah:

Where is your Board? Is it below the bridge? Below MadDog? River right or river left? Is your contact info written on the board?

Tom

Hi Tom,

Its located upriver from Picnic Rock right across from one of the covered picnic tables. It is on river right... blue hala attcha. At present time its leashed above to the cottonwood that it is stuck in. Just got it and have not yet labeled.

Any help is certainly appreciated. Thank you!

SUP Recovered! Thank you!

Got some help from some kayakers today to recover... with the lower water levels it popped out and was still leashed to the tree. Thanks everyone for all of the offers of support and keeping an eye out!
