About the event

Red River Moonlight Paddle

The Red River is dropping and sandbars are peaking out.  We have a 90% moon Saturday night and there is NO chance of rain.  All signs point to a fine paddle evening.

When:  Saturday, July 29, 2023 at 7:30 pm – paddles in the water at 8:00pm

Where:  SPAR property beside the Sam’s Town parking garage in downtown Shreveport

Launch location:

What: We will paddle from under the Clyde Fant bridge to a sandbar and return.

Parking/amenities: Park and offload boats at location on the map above. Note that you can drive down close to the river's edge with a truck or SUV, but there is some debris and holes along the hill.  They can be seen if you go slow and watch carefully.  It is steep.  If you're not comfortable, just park on the asphalt right past the gate.  We did take my Mazda down there with zero issues.

David and I will get there around 6:30pm Saturday night to clear a path to the water.  If you want to help with that project, feel free to show up then.

Lagniappe: We will have our bass boat with us and will bring firewood to the sandbar.  It will serve as our safety boat for the evening.  Expect to be back to the parking lot between 10-11:00pm.   I'd prefer for us to stay together as a group.

Bring whatever you want to drink and roast over an open fire.  We will have an open fire grill.   If you have a bag chair or small ice chest that can't fit in your boat, we can transport in the bass boat.

Duration:  2.5 hours

What to bring:  Kayak, paddle, PFD, LIGHTS, grill food, chair, bug spray, sunblock, and drink.

Leader/Contact person:  Tammy Jernigan
