Branch River Icebreaker – March 16, 2013

Twelve intrepid paddlers – 3 tandem canoes, 1 solo canoe, and 5 kayaks – ran the Branch River in RICKA’s annual Branch River Icebreaker.  The river was at a nice level – 3.5 feet, 400 cfs.  The trip almost started badly when a police car stopped and told us that we could not use the put-in at the Harrisville Dam which is now posted “No Trespassing”.  After a bit of negotiating, Mike B. was able to get us approval.  Otherwise, the trip was uneventful.  Three swims  - one below the Harrisville Dam and two in the Glendale Rapid.  Nice break at the Oakland Dam.  Good day.
