Late notice I know but this weekend actually looks like a NO RAIN WEEKEND! I’ll accept the 20% chance of isolated, late afternoon showers! Temps will be in the upper 80’s too! Perfect time to be on the river!
The fastest flowing river in Indiana, the WHITEWATER RIVER is considered a Class 1 stream and great for paddlers of all skill levels! One of my favorite rivers to paddle. Morgan Adventures will be our host. I personally like having a shuttle to carry me to & from the outfitters knowing my car is parked in a safe location.
This will be a 12 mile paddle lasting 5 – 7 hours. So bring a lunch & plenty of water as it’s looking to be a hot, sunny day. I just may “roll over” on purpose!
If you need to RESERVE a kayak PLEASE CALL Morgan’s to reserve one for the, “Wolf Creek to Cedar Grove’ Trip. (The COMBO Trip) If you have your own kayak, their shuttle fee is only $15 bucks. As of Tuesday afternoon there is no need to call ahead but it doesn’t hurt to be on the safe side: so call ahead. PHONE #:[masked]
I AM GOING! By myself if I have to, but it would be SO NICE to have a few friends going too.
Morgan’s have sit-on-top kayaks that are very stable. For a more fun paddle? Contact Paul Hilton & rent one of his sit-in kayaks! I can get two in the back of my truck with mine on top which I can pick up the morning of.

Suggested items to bring: Kayak, paddle, PFD, wide brimmed hat, sun block, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, large sponge, bilge pump or container to bail out water, water, snacks, weather radio, towel, change of clothes, water shoes, paddling gloves, rain gear, bug spray, safety whistle, drybags, Ziplock bags, camera, binoculars, rope, headlamp or flashlight, a sense of adventure, and a good dose of humor.
For clothing try to use something other than cotton, especially if the weather is cool. Polypropylene or polyester are good choices since neither holds water and they wick moisture away from you.

Remember, IYAK requires everybody to wear a PFD while they are on the water. Safety first!
