Trip 1

Trip 2 Sr. 589 to US Hwy 49

The numerous large sandbars in the first five miles are replaced with high soapstone banks and some bluffs as the trip progresses. There is one fun place with a 2-3 ft. drop towards the end. A “tricky” put in and a couple logjams make this a good trip for the adventurous paddler.

Lots of twists and turns - riffles and fast places make for an interesting trip. Cool, clear tributaries and springs provide relief on hot summer days. Large white sandbars appear in the last half of trip just in time to take a rest.

Trip length        9.5 miles

Paddling time    4-7 hours

Trip 2 Hwy 49-City Bridge

Sandbars larger and more numerous – shallow water, sandy bottom, good current.Good trip for novices and families.

Begin at Lux Bridge on Okatoma Creek – paddle 1.5 miles to confluence with the Bowie , another 5 miles to the take out at bridge on Peps Point Rd. Meanders enough to make trip interesting – some sandbars for picnicking and rest stops. Little development and very few people make for a good wilderness experience.
