Trip Reports

Aug 25- Pine, Elm Flats to Peterson Bridge

Sara Cockrell  | Published on 8/25/2020
Last minute paddle on the Pine with Jocelyn & Jim Cooper from Elm Flats to Peterson Bridge, with a short lunch stop at Dobson Bridge, which was halfway on our 12.5 mile journey today. It was refreshingly cool in the shade & lots of riffles to keep us on our toes. The water was low for me at 235 cfs & wider gravel bars, but normal for this time in the summer season. We started with a reverse shuttle since we could easily drive by Peterson on our way to Elm Flats, so one less trip back & forth. I invited Jim to join us yesterday after the CCCC Honor road ride, and it was his first on the Pine as a new member of TAPC. We saw Jake from PRPC several times delivering customers & picking up boats. It was a great day to be on the river together!
