Title: Chase To Kamloops River Cruise
Post by: paddlepals on April 21, 2013, 08:05:08 AM
We were thinking that a beautiful cruise on the SUP's would be splashin in around Chase and drift /paddle the river as it heads towards Kamloops. Anyone else thinking of spending a day that way? Has anyone done this one before?

Done it in a canoe or kayak a number of times - my advice is don't underestimate how long it will take.

The first time I did it a buddy and I planned to spend an afternoon doing the trip, and gave ourselves 6 hours to complete it. It wasn't nearly long enough - paddling non-stop from the put in on little Shuswap only got us to the Pritchard bridge.

It's a good way to spend a day (or even two), but it'll take longer than you think.
