Big Wood River SUP

SUP Season is here!!!  It has been a really fun enjoying the spring run off on the Big Wood River.  I can put in down the street from my house and get a 8 mile run. This season we have even gone to Hailey a few times. The great ski season has set up for a great sup season.  The Big Wood is a really beautiful river that few people float due to its shallowness.  The best part has been sharing time on the river with old and new friends.

Located in the heart of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, Redfish Lake is named for the brilliant Sockeye Salmon that once returned from the Pacific Ocean in such massive quantities that the lake shimmered red during spawning season. Sadly, these fish are now on the endangered species list.  In the fall when supping you can see a few of these beautiful fish that have been trucked in to spawn.

One of my favorite paddles is a lap around Redfish Lake. It is about 9.7 miles when you circumnavigate.  The lake sits at 6,500 feet and is surrounded by 10,000 foot peaks.
