Canceled – Kayak the Clinch River

July 20 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Unfortunately, due to the TVA not releasing on their normal schedule this Saturday, we are cancelling this trip. We will try to reschedule for a future date.

Bring your kayak and join us on Saturday, July 20, for a scenic paddle trip down the Clinch River. The usual kingfishers and great blue herons are sure to be seen, but otters and bald eagles have also been seen while paddling the river. We will be dependent on TVA to release water from Norris Lake before we take off. The flowing water will make for an easy trip, but there are a couple of places we may drag bottom or have to maneuver small rapids, which could result in getting wet… so be prepared.

We will paddle from Miller Island down the TWRA River Access at the bridge on Charles G Seivers Blvd/TN 61. The trip can take between 3 and 4 hours; a shuttle service will be available at the takeout. The shuttle will cost about $10/person. Kayakers are responsible for supplying their own kayaks.

Participants should meet at 10:30am at the Miller Island boat ramp on River Road in Norris. Please bring and wear a life jacket whenever on the boat! Be prepared for the sun, and bring a lunch and water. For more information and to RSVP, contact Ken Mayes at ken.mayes@icloud.com.
