  Two paddling groups you may try

Here are two paddling groups you may be interested in:

Central Iowa Paddlers (CIP) is an informal group of paddlesport enthusiasts founded in March of 1997. The mission of the club is to share information, promote paddling opportunities and paddlesport safety, and encourage care of our aquatic resources. The group includes both new and experienced paddlers from diverse backgrounds. Here's a link to the web site

You also may want to check out the Skunk River Paddlers. Here's a link to their web site:

I imagine Lizard Creek is running real high right now with all the rain and flash flood warnings in northern Iowa.

Be safe out there.
  Charles City

Vic's advice is great. There is also a constructed whitewater rapids in Charles City. Once the current flooding is over you might wander over there on the weekend and hook up with the locals that use that structure.
  Just south of FD

We needed this rain just not all at once. Lizard is good at 5-6ft. Hopefully the sun will come out for the next 2-3weeks so we can get Project AWARE in and slow the rivers down.
