Lost all my belongings after being tipped over by the rapids in a kayak. I lost a fishing rod, blue tackle box, and two kayak oars. (also described in another post, lost two iPhones and a wallet). If found, please let me know. Thank you!!

Hi Richard!

I would greatly appreciate you taking a look in the creek for me! I think it is amazing that you are able to help others in my situation. I know there is a big chance that everything I lost is gone for good, but any help in finding them would mean a lot! I went back to the creek myself to take another look but I only searched in the area that I originally fell out of the kayak in the rapids. I figured everything went with the current and was long gone. But if you could check some areas you've found other items, that would be great! Thank you!!

Megan

I went out today and looked around the guide hole. and only saw pool toys laying in the river but I would imagine there is a much better chance of finding your gear when the flows drop. do you think the bag had enough air in the bag that it would float ? otherwise its a mute point as it sank from the weight of the phones and wallett 

 

I think I have recovered at least 5 or 6 Kayaks maybe more

Thank you for looking! I believe there was enough air in the bag because I remember seeing it on top of the water going with the current when I came up for air. There's a chance that the bag might have gotten a hole in it from the branches and sunk, but I'm not sure.
