Lost AT paddle and rescue bag on Logan

Today we ran the upper Logan. Below Monolith my partner swam out of his IK and I tried to pin it downstream. I got into some branches and punched out of my Dagger. I held on to most briefly but lost the following:
1st generation AT bent shaft carbon paddle
The waist belt(floats) from my rescue bag 1st use!
A sweet Hydroflask
REWARD!

Thanks-

Found your paddle.

Didn't see any of the other things floating in the eddy where your paddle was but I will keep my eye out when I float the Logan again tomorrow.

Grabbed your paddle.

I have your paddle safe and sound. I have run the Logan three times since I saw your paddle and have been eddy hopping looking for your other things but I haven't found anything but your paddle. Let me know when you are headed up to the Logan again and I can get your paddle back. It is a nice paddle and would be a shame to lose!

Thanks so much. Trying to make it up Saturday. What level is too high on the upper section?

I haven't been on the river much higher than 650, but this is only my second season on the river. I have heard of it being run at much higher levels (+1000) and think the flows that it gets scary are dependent on your skill level. But I can't imagine with the limited amount of snow in the canyon that we would be able to reach that level anyway. I think the forecast is for somewhere in the 700s which could be fast but still entirely runnable.

Send me a note if you are coming up so I can give you your paddle (or stash it somewhere where you can grab it). If not we can find some other time/place to make the handoff.

Was the rope deployed? If so, you've created an entanglement hazard.
