Mitzi Bault - Kayaking on Russell Creek Sat 17 Jun 2017
The kayaking bug has bitten Mitzi and her friends. She can't stay away from Russell Creek anymore, it seems. This is a brief account of that perfect day, yesterday, a wonderful day to enjoy the sport

By Mitzi Bault
We - Julia Burris, Jerri Rush and I - went Kayaking on Russell Creek yesterday. We put in on KY 55 by the Adair Automotive NAPA store - Steve's place in Columbia - and then paddled downstream all the way to the Pelham Branch takeout on Pelham Branch Road.
The scenery on Russell Creek is beautiful along this stretch of Adair County's Paddle Trail. Yesterday one of the standouts was a gorgeous mimosa tree, not only a sight for the eyes but for the nose as well. (They say age changes our ability to smell, but mine has grown more sensitive.
It may be due to all the medical treatments I've undergone; I think so, but I know I now have superb olfaction, a real handicap when the air is filled with unpleasant aromas - but when the air is redolent with the fragrance of mimosa blossoms, I thank God and remember all that's been given me. Some pictures from the float accompany this item, including one of the Big Bream Dallas Cofer caught.
Wow! Surely enough to feed good part of a multitude with enough Bunny Bread!
I'm posting it as inspiration my little cousin in Shelby County, who aspires to fishing in college and also, to recognize a true fishing hero, Dallas Cofer.
