“Multiple Use” as viewed with Recreation Resource Management.
Many activities occur daily along the rivers we so love to retreat to. These things include hiking, fly fishing, picnicking, spin casting, kayaking, wildlife viewing, canoeing, artists working, hunting, class room field trips, farming and more. This also includes use of private as well as public lands.
1. Never disturb fishermen, paddle quietly by.Recreational Kayakers are only allowed to launch during the hottest part of the day between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on the Lower Canyon and between 10:30 and 4:30 on the Upper River.
2. Pick up all litter you see, tires too.
3. Be alert to what is ahead, READ THE RIVER.
4. Wear the personal floatation device, be safe.
5. Do not bring alcohol or drugs. (Enjoy beverages after the wilderness adventure.)
1. Acknowledging other uses of the river and the resources it offers.Fly fishermen have discovered that kayaking the Lower Canyon on the Kinni is a very valuable way to gain 100% access to areas of the river that were previously inaccessable through private lands. It saves them time from hiking all day as well as giving them a vehicle to store their gear as an alternate to their back. The kayak rental also includes a shuttle service. Fly fishermen MUST inquire about earlier launches.
2. Kindly instructing paddlers to pass behind them, around their line, or simply
retrieving the line to let paddlers pass.
