Re: Bayou Bartholomew

Sorry, I just saw this. I recently did a several day paddle on the lower White River. It was very nice. Since Bayou Bart. Is the longest Bayou in the world, it is certainly tempting to paddle its length. It would be a difficult trip though, since very little has been actually developed as trail. I h...

Re: Water trails

The issue right now is low water. My recommendations would be either the Little Maumelle or Wattensaw Bayou. Both will have enough water to paddle and are very nice. https://www.agfc.com/en/explore-outdoors/wildlife-viewing/water-trails/little-maumelle-river-water-trail/ https://www.agfc.com/en/expl...

Re: Winter/Spring 2016/17 Wetland Touring Schedule

The paddle is still on. I will post today. The White River is rising, so it could be an adventure.

Wetland tour at Maddox Bay near Lawrenceville. Saturday Feb. 18. The plan is to paddle from Sweats Landing to Adams Bayou and into Eagles Nest Lake. Forecast is sunny and warm and waterlevels are good, but not enough to bushwhack into Cut Bluff slough as we have done in the past. This should make fo...

Re: Winter/Spring 2016/17 Wetland Touring Schedule

Grassy Lake Wetland Tour #3 Cancelled. The gates at Grassy have been closed, but the lake is filling slowly and is still quite low. We could possibly deal with low water, but the forecast is not so good either. Rainey and 45 degrees on low water doesn't make for a very appealing picture. I will defi...

Wetland Tour #1 Little Maumelle 11/12/16 not Wattensaw

Wetland Tour #1 Little Maumelle Greetings everyone! Yes, this was the Wattensaw trip, but somehow in spite of looking at the deer season schedule, I did not see that Saturday is opening day. It will be a battlefield out there and I feel we will be safer on the Little Maumelle. I will post a new Watt...

Bayou Deview Sunday August 28-2016

I just can't miss a great opportunity to float Bayou Deview in August. It will be sunny but not too hot under the heavy tree canopy and the water level will be perfect. We will meet at TRicks in Hazen exit 193 off I 40 at 9am. The plan is to put in at Hickson Lake, join the main trail and paddle up ...
