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.

Kayaking Russell Creek: Jerri Rush & Julia Burris

Having other kayakers along - above, Jerri Rush, left, and Julia Burris - adds to the pleasure of kayaking Russell Creek. Close by were Dallas Cofer and Greg Willis, passing through. Nearly everyone owes their knowledge of the sport to Robin Curry, our teacher who wasn't with us Saturday, but to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude. - Mitzi Bault Photo Sat 17 Jun 2017.

Mitzi Bault, kayaking: A new, exhiliarating experience experience



2017-06-18 - Russell Creek, between NAPA & Pelham Br. Rd. take-out - Photo by Mitzi Bault.
The scenery on Russell Creek is beautiful along this stretch of Adair County's Paddle Trail. Yesterday one of the standouts was this 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.Almost everyone knows that the mimosa tree is hated by many as unwelcome immigrant species. It's a legume and the beans are toxic to livestock and humans - so a bit dangerous to have in a yard. The photo was taken for the satisfaction it gives me and for a favorite aunt, from Metcalfe County, who often talks fondly of the memories of the mimosa tree she most vividly remembers which adorned her house in Sulphur Well, and for Uncle Ed, who will privately admit how much he likes the trees, especially as summer approaches. - Mitzi

Kayaking Russell Creek: Dallas Cofer's trophy bream



2017-06-18 - Russell Creek, Adair County, KY .
This is 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 is wanting to learn from the best fisherman, I know, my grandson Blake. This is near "the old mill." You can see the old rock walls of the mill, nothing else. I've heard it was called Feese's Mill - hope that's right. - Mitzi
