Reading Rivers

Driving a car safely involves much more than simply focusing only as far ahead as the taillights of the car in front of you. The same goes for “reading” a river beyond the bow of your canoe or kayak. Even familiar waterways can have extensive swings in their personality and landscape that constantly require paddlers to sharpen their on-water“reading” skills.
Stream channels and river bends mean we need to anticipate, read and respond to visual clues upon short notice. Some of those warning/caution signs are:

Riverside Recreation is located in Forest County along the Allegheny River in West Hickory, PA. We have an 8 mile canoe or kayak float on the Allegheny River from Tidioute to West Hickory which will take from 2 to 4 hours to complete. A 10 mile and overnight floats are also available. You will be shuttled up river to Tidioute or other designated boat launches and you will float to West Hickory. This stretch of river is calm with a few ripples, a few deep sections and no white water. It’s a very relaxing and enjoyable trip.

Rustic River Front cabins are available to rent. One day rental is $55 or $100 for two days. Riverfront, fire ring, A/C, microwave, small refrigerator. Bath house available with shower and toilet.

Say good-bye to the hassles of getting a canoe or kayak on top of the car. Just step out of your cabin and walk to the riverfront, where boats, paddles, and life vests—and great family adventures—await.

Make a togetherness pact.
Know your distance limit.
Do your hazard research.
Know your water temp.
Check your PFD.
Be cautious about using a spray skirt.
Don’t forget your whistle.

Tips for Your First Time Kayaking

Planning your first non-guided outing? Make things easy on yourself:
· Choose a small, calm body of water. Lakes or ponds with little or no powerboat traffic are ideal.
· Find a gently sloping sandy beach to launch. Steep, mucky and rocky shorelines will be more challenging.
· Go on a sunny, windless day. You’ll keep complications low and comfort high.
· If it’s breezy, start out by paddling into the wind. Paddling into a headwind on your way back is a struggle; paddling with a tailwind is, well, a breeze.
· Plan on an outing, not an expedition. For an optimum fun to fatigue ratio, keep your paddling time under two hours.
