About the event

Bodcau PopUp Paddle

Bodcau’s water level is currently at ~160 feet which is a great level to paddle.

When:  Monday, July 3, 2023 at 5:45pm – paddles in the water at 6:00pm

Where:  Tom Merrill Recreation Area at Bodcau Bayou – Day Use area on the far side of the bayou (across the bayou from the campground).

What: We will paddle from the spillway to the Twin Bridges on Hwy 157.  Make sure to check in at kiosk or on the LDWF WMA mobile app.

Parking/amenities: Park and offload boats at launch location.  We will have a vehicle and trailer at the take out already, but if you want to shuttle your vehicle to the take out, have your boat unloaded at the launch by 5:30pm.  Parking at the Twin Bridges is limited.  Bathrooms are available in the campground.

Lagniappe: We will have extra boats if you don’t feel like loading yours up for this paddle.  Just let Mark or Tammy know if you need one.

Duration:  2.5 hours

What to bring:  Kayak, paddle, PFD, bug spray, sunblock, water and snack.

Also, if you want to participate in a short litter pick up after the paddle, bring some gloves, rakes, pickers, etc and we’ll spend 15-20 minutes picking up trash at the Twin Bridges take out.  The COE will provide trash bags but sometimes I like to tote a bucket as I find it easier.

Leader/Contact person:  Mark Robinson, Tammy Jernigan
