Neches River Day Trip

I did this trip last year, but I'm trying out this embed feature to see if it works.

This was a great trip. I was in a rented Old Town Pack canoe. A bit on the wide side for me, but very maneuverable (needed on this type of trip). It was a bit slower than the kayaks on the trip, but I could keep up fine if I just worked a bit more.

The river was a bit low, and with all the downed timber, it sure made for an interesting day on the river. Watch out for the wasp nests NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in. For free PBF membership click here
