Cold weather and cold water is here. If you paddle in the winter, be safe-not a statistic.

Wanted to say THANK YOU to the volunteers that made today's Dare to Care Hunger Walk and Voyageur Canoe Race a success. The weather and the water could not have... been better. And a BIG THANK YOU to the Metro Police and Louisville Fire and Rescue water patrols for your help keeping the paddlers safe while they were on the water.

Kentucky and the EPA started working on a nutrient cleanup plan for Floyds Fork in 2007. A decade later, it's still not done.

KPA Spring Kayak and Canoe Classes

Make plans to join us…2017 Kayak weekend is May 20th Flat Water and May 21st Moving Water

Warmer weather is on its way and we are all anxious to get back out on the water and start a great season of paddling the local waterways. So let's make plans to get together and exchange information on paddling techniques, boats and boating gear of all sorts, as well as water safety, and help make this a great season of paddling FUN. The Kentuckiana P...addlers are a group of folks who love to be out on the water, finding new trips to paddle, making new friends and becoming better paddlers. We are really fortunate to have members of our group who are certified instructors in both canoe and kayak with personal backgrounds in all kinds of paddling from whitewater to sea kayaking, to stand up canoe poling, to stand up paddleboards to kayak sailing and more! we get together each spring and share some stories, and learn about what kind of paddling is available in our area and how to have more FUN on the water. So even if you have done a class in the past, come and join us again, we probably have new stories to share... We really look forward to seeing everyone there.

Each of the classes will meet at 9:00AM and run till about 4:00 PM so plan to bring a lunch and some water. Saturday will be a beginners or flat water class and Sunday will cover moving water paddling and will be a more advanced beginner/intermediate class. Each class will begin with dry land discussions about boats and gear and safety, paddling techniques and strategies, and information from the American Canoe Association and Coast Guard about all things boating. As always the weather and water available has a lot to do with our choices of paddling venue, so stand by for locations, and cross your fingers that we have friendly weather and don't have too little or too much water. For all KPA classes you will need a boat, paddle, and a life jacket with a whistle. You should try to find either some old tennis shoes or water shoes, and non-cotton clothes, because we do get wet! (It's a good idea to bring a towel and a change of clothes). We always like answer all boat and gear questions at the beginning of each class and show all sorts of additional gear that can help to keep you safer, drier, warmer and help to make your paddling more FUN.

Class Fee is $20 for one class; $30 for both.

If you have questions about the classes, and want to reserve a spot, you can send an e-mail to Scott Workman hasabird@gmail.com We will register and fill out insurance waivers the morning of the class, and pay for the classes on site by check or cash.

Our canoe classes were a blast last year, and will be on June 3rd and 4th for the single bladed in our group. More information on this class to come, so keep watching our Facebook page for details

Important notice for all paddlers!

The boat ramp at the Nolin Lake Tailwater will be closed to paddlers starting on Monday, March 27 due to the demolition of Lock and Dam #6 on the Green River. The ramp will be closed for the duration of the project which will take several weeks.

The lock and dam, built in 1904 was closed to navigation traffic in August, 1951, more than 65 years ago. The Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Department of Interior Fish and Wildlife Service will partner together for the removal.

The weather has been warm but the water is still cold.

Be smart, be safe, and dress for the swim.
