Kayaking Season is upon us

This winter had very little rain. So why, you might ask, would we be talking about kayaking? In Yolo County, our agricultural water supply comes from inner-coast range lakes; Clear lake and Indian Valley reservoir. These are rainfall-fed lakes and while there wasn't a lot of rain this year, last year had enough to carry over. This season the irrigation has started earlier so a 'benefit' is that boating season is also earlier. I've talked with the District and it looks like it will last through August, meaning we get more boating than usual. But before you jump up and down too much, remember that if we don't get a good winter this coming season, next season may be a bad kayaking year. So it all kind of evens out....

This year, Tuleyome's Cache Creek Weed Eradication project will have three overnight kayak trips. You are invited. Send an email to yolohiker@yolohiker.org if you want to help out. Bring your own kayak!

Trips are:
June 9-10, 2007
July 7-8, 2007
August 18-19, 2007

I will also be leading 4 or so trips on various Fridays during May through July. If you can get off on the second or fourth Fridays of each month, and want to come with us, let me know.
