Kayaking the Ocoee river, Tn.
« on: July 12, 2014, 10:38:59 AM »
Came down off the mountain Jul 5th to Kayak the Ocoee river with my daughter Beth, SIL, and a couple of friends and do a little fishing along the way. We had a great day and ended our trip where the Ocoee meets the Hiwassee River
From around 0830 till noon the fishing was nonstop, almost ever cast produced a fish. Then you couldn't buy a bite.
Hope you enjoy the photo's.

I never have had the opportunity to paddle the Ocoee, but it's one that has always been on my bucket list.  Looks like you guys had a great time! :thumbsup:

Looks like a great day to be out on the water, and it looked pretty smooth too.  Nice fishing like that makes it even more fun.  I'd like to try a kayak some day- they always look to be a lot of fun....it's on the bucket list!

Great pics too, thanks for sharing!!

Awesome place.  I was just downriver(?) In the WW section getting banged up on a SUP.

See ya soon.

Thanks for taking us along.  Looked like a really nice trip.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.
