  Stay short IMO
  Posted by: seadart on Apr-24-13 10:46 PM (EST)

If it were me I would stick to a short paddle, you might not want a carbon fiber paddle so you can use it to push off the bottom on shallow creeks. I lived in Bucks County PA and my boss lived in the Pine Barrens. Only did canoe paddling then, but if I were going back to small twisty streams there I would go with a short paddle to avoid the snags and overhead branches etc, and so you can paddle close to the hull to get around obstacles, mostly branches. If you post on the general section there is a Celebrity Poster from the Pine Barrens who can weigh in.
