Here's a video of my favorite Halloween tradition, a costume run down the White Salmon's Green Truss!
I look forward to this every year. Paddlers go all out with their amazing costumes and it's so much fun to see a colorful line of kayaks, wigs and capes charging down the river.
Big thanks to the Herbeck's…Continue

What a great idea: kayaking a part of PE class. That's the plan for Turtle River Montessori School students in Jupiter, Fla. It may not be whitewater, but the Intracoastal Waterway near Burt Reynolds Park will become a floating classroom!
We here at Dagger think it would be awesome if all students got on the water as a part of school curriculum. Like the article says...
"They'll learn leadership skills and teamwork skills,"..."They have to work together, paddle…Continue

The Adirondack Park Agency has approved construction of a new whitewater paddling park on the Sacandaga River in the southern Adirondack town of Hadley. Tom Saehrig is a planner with the APA. He says the goal is to add boulders and other challenging water features that will offer a fresh draw to sport…Continue

Most people that think of Cali boating don’t consider the Fall time to be that great but there are many years when we are blessed by the fact that most all of our rivers have a dam on them. So far this season we received scheduled releases on the NF Feather, and SF Feather which were negotiated by AW. The NF Feather offers road side whitewater for all boaters. There is a nice 2 mile class IV-V stretch that you can run laps on all day.
During September this year not much was running…

Check out the trailer for ReImagined from the makers Currents. Among many other big names on many more amazing rivers, I'll be featured for a segment on the Little White Salmon, my backyard run. Enjoy.

A cool feature on www.firstdescents.org (a non profit that Dagger supports) on PBS. It's also an awesome tribute to Nick "Nickname" Raitt. Good friend, good boater, good guy.

I woke up Saturday morning to my phone ringing and a groggy ten second conversation. “We’re going to Skook, I’ll pick you up in a half hour,” said a voice that I couldn’t quite put a face to. I knew it had to be one of the young local Bellingham paddlers and without thinking replied, “I’m in, see you in thirty.” Impulse decisions have always led to the most exciting adventures of my life and I knew this weekend was going to be one to remember. On Friday, my plans to fly to the Homathko River…Continue

In 2 weeks, Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Washington will be packed with enough explosives to blow a huge hole in the base of the concrete wall. Moments after the climactic explosion, 10,000 CFS will gush from the tunnel and drain Northwestern Lake completely in 6 hours. That’s the moment paddlers have been…
Oregon is known for its huge, runnable waterfalls. Most of the world records for highest waterfall have been set in Oregon. However, Oregon is not known for great class five whitewater (Little White Salmon is in Washington for those not encompassed in PNW geography).
My buddy Matt King recently moved towards Eastern Oregon and away from the whitewater scene, or so we thought... He dedicated many days to driving around and scouting out the Wallowa Mountain range. The…Continue

Remember that time the South thought it was cool? When they pitied us because our rivers only run when it’s snowing out?
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard this at the end of a list of hip bars, clean waterfalls, and vague mentions of southern belles:
“…And we have the Green. You know, it runs every day of the summer.”
God, I hate that.
(Nick hates it even more)
Guess what all you Asheville snobs? Now WE have the…Continue
