LOST: Aire Lynx II IK with Orange dry bags, paddles, & tackle box. I was separated from the kayak on the Lower Salmon at Half & Half rapid. I believe the kayak got pinned between half & half and snowhole rapid. Our group didn't see the kayak in any eddies below the rapid. My name and # are on the dry bags. If anyone happens to see it, I would love to hear from you! Picture below is of the kayak the morning before it was lost.

No good story to go with the lost and found post?
Well, our group pulled over (river right) to scout half and half rapid. There was a group scouting the rapid ahead of us. The group ahead of us, went back to their boats and ran the rapid. My unmanned kayak followed their group though the rapid and flipped. The group said they saw my boat go by while they were on the beach below half and half, but could't get to it in-time. Neither our group, nor any other groups that we passed on the river saw it. That's why I think it's likely got hung up below half and half. I'm not sure if this is a good story, but if my boat ever gets to run that rapid again, I hope its in the "other half" camp!
