About the event

Bodcau PopUp Paddle

Bodcau’s water level is currently at ~161 feet which is a great level to paddle.  The water has been high for the last month or two so we could encounter some obstacles.  It will be warm so water and sunblock are necessities.

When:  Sunday, July 7, 2024 – unload boats by 9:00 am;  paddles in the water at 9:30am

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 by 9:00am.  We’ll then shuttle vehicles to the take out if necessary.  Parking at the Twin Bridges is limited.  Bathrooms are available in the campground.

Lagniappe: if you need a loaner boat, I’ll have some available for BCOS members. 

Duration:  2 hours

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

Leader/Contact person:  Tammy Jernigan-
