I am planning a trip to the Nashville area at the end of Sept. I will be in Nashville itself a couple of days, but I will have enough time to do something even a full days drive from there. I am looking primarily for day trips, but an overnighter is not out of the question for a really scenic trip.
1. Do I take the solo canoe (Royalex) or the touring kayak (fiberglass)? On the map it there appears to be a lot of more open water lakes that might favor bringing the kayak, but I am not sure if these are the more scenic paddles that I would be most interested in.
2. What would be your best recommendations for trips 1)with the canoe 2)with the kayak.
3. Any paddling clubs in that area I should try and contact?
Thanks for any help you can give.

I looked at the trip reports|

but not being familiar with the state I had no idea of what trips were anywhere near Nashville. I did finally resort to the slow process of going back and forth between the reports and searching on Google maps to try to find ones near Nashville.
I googled canoeing rivers near Nashville|

and got results for the Harpeth, Duck, Red, Caney Fork, etc. Useful information.

I know he's done some of the rivers around Nashville like the Harpeth.

Driving out to Center Hill Lake. It's big and has very little development and not a bunch of boat traffic
