Springtime SUP on the John Day River

Spring is in the air meaning the hills are filled with lush greenery, colorful flowers, and plenty of curious critters. But for many paddlers, springtime also has a different meaning–the start of paddling season. While the SUP race season officially kicked off this past weekend with the Carolina Cup, many recreational paddlers are also returning to the waters for the first-time after the cold winter months. However, perhaps no one is more excited for spring than river paddlers. Here we find experienced river paddler Paul Clark enjoying a awesome 70-mile run down the John Day River in Oregon. The paddlers experience beautiful scenery, challenging rapids, and even get a little fly fishing in. A perfect way to enjoy a beautiful spring day.
