Lost Kayak x3
Permalink  
 


Hey can you guys keep an eye out for 3 kayaks? I found one and plan on going back thursday to get it but there are still 2 missing so please let me know if you find them and I will or better yet just grab them and call me or solano county sheriff or winters Fire. I was fishing the creek today when it all went south at the Guide Hole for the 3 young people in them and I was the one that helped the 2 girls get medical care by running them to winters fire dept then brought fire rescue back for the 3rd-- a 17 yr old boy who was stuck on the back side. I got the contact info for the girls' sister and spoke with her and she would like to get the kayaks back as they are her dads and obviously pricy. I checked access 1,2,3 and only found one so please let me know if any one finds one or both of the other 2 and I will either give you their phone # or call them and give them your #.  

  Thank in advance 

Richard 

ps the girls are scraped and bruised but otherwise fine  They dont plan on doing this again any time soon

What the hell are people thinking? Signs need to be put up to avoid people from going down the creek in kayaks and rafts. Stupid.

Agreed, why would you ever float a river that you don't know?

The creek is dangerous - specially to inexperienced kayakers/ rafters (and I assume these people are inexperienced are if they are borrowing 'yaks).  A UCD student tragically drowned in 2014.  The PC is deceptively tame in sections and especially treacherous in others.

 

I have collected paddles from the bushes many years in a row as if there was a yard sale going on upstream.  I've passed them on to new owners since.

 

One outing, I heard a commotion upstream of where I was fishing and then saw flotsam coming down including an orange dry box containing the owner's wallet and car keys.  After fishing a bit longer, I drove back upstream to find a father and son standing next to their locked car.  They were happy to have those items returned...

I could do without the extra signs littering the creek. .02
