News Watch

The Playak News Watch continously finds the world"s new paddling headlines. From the huge number of headlines it finds, Playak editors hand-pick and present the best ones (yes, that is very subjective, but they do their best to please our readers) every day, and those that then get the most reader views are sent out in the daily News Flash. Each Friday, we send out the Weekly Digest (instead of the daily News Flash), containing the top headlines of the past 7 days, as well as the most popular videos and forum topics, and a list of upcoming paddling events.

The Pristine Little White Salmon

Jackson Kayak (4 hrs. ago) - I was overcome by a feeling of shock and awe as we approached Drano Lake (the lake the Little White Salmon flows into before reaching the Columbia River). Since I was 11 years old, I had browsed pictures, watched videos, and read of the legendary Little White Salmon. The surreal feeling was only intensified once we begun hiking down to the put in beneath the bridge, passing a green road sign that read “Little White Salmon.” The river was nearing the low side at around 3 feet (for west coast standards), but still felt great.  read more...
