Lost gear in Clear Creek Of the Ark

here is the gear we lost in there: A Prijon Kompressor Kayak, a Prijon carbon fiber paddle, both with the name of Sammer Elias on them; A Blue Pool Paddle with red tips with the name of Tom Doherty on it.
They are probably in the third gorge or beyond. We got caught in there as the creek flashed to between 800 and 1000 cfs.

We would be extremely grateful if you were to find any of this unique gear.
thank you

We ran it on sat at high flows as well. We saw an orange or red prijon I believe on the left bank between the first and second gorge.... as well as broken blue bladed paddle in some wood above the third gorge. Sorry I can't be more specific with the boat but I was pretty well busy at that point in time.

Now for my paddle. I blew up at the entrance for the second gorge and lost my almost new woody down stream somewhere. Used a break down and boated to third gorge with no luck on the paddle. BTW the exit busy water to the third gorge is loaded with wood right now, including a river wide tree that at higher flows cannot be ducked under unless you want a wicked headache or bruised shoulder. Be careful out there... I have never seen so much shit moving in there before. Lots ofbeer and karma to anyone who finds my woody. Ryan 970-485-1836
