Heading back to the main body of water and staying near the shoreline it's shallow enough to see plenty of underwater activity by the fish and some are pretty good size mind you! Talked to some kid who was telling me he took a 5 pounder out but released it to give someone else some fun. Lots of little coves that just are begging to be checked out. The whole shoreline run takes at least 3- 4 hours depending on how fast you are paddling. A couple of little islands too. There have been lots of geese and ducks with their young lately, and turtles. I saw the biggest frog I've ever seen here too! Just be careful if you get out of your boat to stretch, where you walk for two reasons, goose poop and snakes. I saw 4 one day just sunning themselves and after checking into what they were, was told they were eastern water snakes - not overly aggressive snakes unless you bother them. I don't care much for snakes myself so they didn't have any worries from me. Will say they were pretty though.
Can't imagine anyone not liking this paddle and if there has to be a downside to this paddle it has to be mans stupid ways of disposing of trash! This really surprised me considering this is a reservoir. I probably could have outfitted at least 10 cars with tires. And is there anyone who can explain to me why a fisherman can bring a container of worms and some beer or soda cans to enjoy a nice day on the water but they leave them there when they're empty? Don't let this distract you though from what this place has to offer. The only reason this might be considered any harder than easy is if the wind got whipping, but there is still enough little ins and out to the shoreline that that isn't really even a problem. Happy paddling!
