Ruskin Dam Tail Waters Evening Paddle – 20-06-18

This is an accessible and pleasant paddle that can be done in 1 to 2 ½ hours depending on how much time you want to spend there. In the summer the levels are lower and expose some nice areas to dip in and cool off, also the spawning channel has a number ... More
