Upper St. is more than paddle-able at its currents flows over 25 cms. It wmakes for a great class II beginner run. There are even features that are fun for more advanced paddlers.

Nathan said...

I just talked to a guy in Cardston area who is interested in doing some beginner stuff. His name is Mick, and his number is 653-1685. I mentioned to him that Waterton is up and makes a good paddle from the bridge just outside the gates to the Olsen Campground. Belly is up as well. I may be taking him down Belly Friday afternoon depending on other paddling plans. If interested in this river, let me know.

Scott said...

I wouldn't mind going down the belly or waterton, haven't paddled either yet. Friday could work depending on when you want to paddle, saturday is golden. Both wouldn't bother me either.

Scott said...

oh, and my number is 315-0114 just in case. no writting that on bathroom walls

Mackenzie said...

I would love to do say Castle Belly or Upper St on Friday Morning / Afternoon. However I could not go if we don't get off the river by 4:00pm. Anyone interested can email me at mackenzie@definitionsystems.ca

Nathan said...

My brother Janson, Mick, and I are going to paddle the short section of Belly River Friday afternoon around 4 p.m. Call me with any questions (403) 653-2064.

Mackenzie said...

Well I can't make it for Sat or that late on Friday so we will have to try another time.

Thanks. Mackenzie

Nathan said...

McKenzie,

If you want to hook up with Scott and Mick for a class II a little later on Saturday, give Scott a call. Sorry that our plans didn't work out. It's always tricky getting things to work out for everyone.

Cheers.

Hi Scott, my friends and I are new to the Lethbridge area and would be interested in joining you for some paddling tomorrow (Saturday) on one of the southern tribs or elsewhere. If you get this message, please give me a call - 382-7485 - Thanks, Matthew

Scott said...

cheers

Scott said...

anyone up for a mid week paddle? i'd like to try the belly out.
open to suggestion.

mackenzie said...

yes definitely!!! I was wanting to go because I can't really go on the weekend. Give me a call and we can work something out. The only day that does not work for me is Tuesday evening. 380-4130

Nathan said...

Scott & MacKenzie,

Janson and I might be able to join you for Belly, it just depends on what day you do it. Tuesday isn't good for me, but Wednesday or Thursday might work out great.

How was Upper St, Scott?

Scott said...

Wednesday works good for me, the later the better, like leaving lethbridge at 3:30 or later. The upper was a bit odd. The water was really moving, but with a low level. So abit bland, but you could still play in the major features. I'm really glad we went even further south and put in of a rancher's land. That added a couple 2 and 3 foot steps that made the whole paddle abit more interesting. From there to kimball's was still only about 4 hours too.
anwyays, i'm good for any day you guys are.

Nathan said...

I just remembered my wife's birthday is Thursday, so Wednesday it is. We can plan for a longer section of Belly. Last time we were on it, it was a little pushy with a few sticky spots, and the triple feature just after the roadside surf has changed a little since last year. How about we meet at my place? 4:30-ish at 338 6th ave west (there is no number visible, but it's the only log cabin on the south side of the road hiding behind bushes). Let me know if this works.

Mackenzie said...

Wednesday works good for me as well, I live in Cardston so I would need to meet up with you somewhere. I can drive if you need. I have a small Ford Ranger. Just give me a call on your plans. Thanks

Hi Nathan,

Stew said...

I hope to join along - Jollin, you want to car pool down?

Nathan said...

I just noticed that I didn't clarify that my address is in Cardston. Does 4:30 in Cardston at 338 6th ave west still work for everyone?

My cell number is 330-9895 if anyone has any questions.

Scott said...

i can car pool with you stew if you'd like.
