Geek of the Week: Paddle Sports

This week is a two-fer! For the fishermen, canoers and kayakers in the audience, here are a couple apps that can help you with your next outing:  


First, “Go Paddling” (free for iPhone & Android). This app points you, not only to all the great, scenic places to take your canoe, but it also points out designated in-and-out points along the way. You may already know you want to travel the Black River, but you may not know where you'll have access to put-in and take-out...this app tells you. (works all over the country, not just Ohio). 



Second, “RiverApp” (free for iPhone & Android). Before you head out for a river excursion, check the conditions with this app. It uses data from the USGS, NOAA, and other government agencies to give you information for your trip. River depths, speeds, water temperatures and more information is available for over 20,000 waterways world-wide.
