Do you have any tips to share?

Be prepared to get wet.  

Cadron Creek is constantly changing, washing away old  obstacles and creating new ones. Be especially cautious around downed trees. Canoes cannot run tree hazards and strainers so avoid these at all times.  Portage if necessary -- even if it means you must drag a boat overland through the woods.

Keeping warm is important. Blue jeans will NOT keep you warm if they are wet -- and they will be!   If it is chilly bring fleece, wool and polypro. A waterproof bag with dry clothes can  certainly be nice.  

There are no bigger hazards on the Cadron than a mismatch between the river's challenges and the paddler's abilities. Make good decisions and don't overestimate your skills. If you want to try out kayaking in a slow moving body of water without rapids, we recommend you check out Rock Town River Outfitters in Little Rock. Sam and his dog Grizz will take good care of you!
