Planning a paddle that is just for fun does require a little bit of information. Water quality issues include not only flow rates, but things that might be in the water as well. This site provides a good amount of informational links that paddlers should use before heading out. https://anrweb.vt.gov/DEC/IWIS/
Paddle safe, have fun, and come back refreshed and alive
Glen Lake is located in between Fair Haven VT and Castleton, VT just a 1/4 mile away from the entrance to Lake Bomoseen State Park. This lake is shaped like a skinny topped anvil. The lake has large motor restriction so it’s a nice calm place to go paddling.
There is a put in that allows you to drop off your boat and then go park, or the short distance from parking to launch might be overcome by many except those with heavier boats that paddle alone.

Should get you to the put in. There is plenty of fish and bird life to sight see and the area is close to other paddle locations.
While a very useful product, it was discontinued because they just didn’t sell enough of it. I suppose that means it worked too well. Looking fro a new adhesive to adhere d rings to Royalex.
I’ll post here when I have info.
With the smart phones burning a hole, sometimes literally, in peoples pockets now I suppose I should address their uses to plan and conduct cool paddle adventures. They can be used as cameras, video devices, compasses, first alert weather, devices, etc. Remember however, they do need protection from the element we are out to enjoy; water.
List of apps and ideas soon.
I made a major move after nearly 18 years in Dallas, TX I relocated to a rural setting in West Central Vermont. The paddling opportunities are much different than TX. The season is different and the summer day are much longer. This will open up a whole new set of paddling new and information.
Let’s enjoy this together,
Here is a blog post that I wrote for the Conservation Law Foundation on the issue of water.
Texas Parks and Wildlife show with the Trinity River in Dallas
This shows us paddling the Trinity river from the Hunt Bridge with bits and pieces down toward Loop 12.
The canoe adventures blog page has been sadly neglected over the last year or so. I have moved the base of my operation from Dallas, TX to the rural setting of Castleton, VT. Started a home remodel project and have been spending time getting ready for a winter in a house that was lacking any heat source when I moved in.
New reviews will follow on a variety of goods.
I just received my order of paddles from Bending Branches. I upgraded a few of my paddle needs to accommodate the variety of boats I now have. One of the paddles is a limited edition double bent shaft paddle. It is a beautiful wooden paddle. I was one their site and notice a new look and new link I would like to recommend to you. http://bendingbranches.com/launch-your-boat Having the gear is one thing, but getting on the water is another.
