Get in a summer frame of mind by participating in a meandering journey down Fishing Creek through soulful countryside.
The morning begins with donuts and coffee. After a welcome and blessing of the vessels, paddlers will embark on a gentle and beautiful 5 mile float down Fishing Creek. Music and a catered barbecue luncheon will be waiting as paddlers come off the creek.
Fishing Creek, one of North Carolina’s treasures, winds through rolling fields and woodlands made up of loblolly pine, gum swamp and cherry bark oak. The largest tributary of the Tar River, Fishing Creek’s history is both ancient and colorful. Shark teeth have been found near the creek and militia men once skirmished with opposing forces along its banks during revolutionary times. The Creek, which twists and turns as it makes its way south to the Tar River, is easily navigated by both beginner and advanced kayakers.
The Downtown Enfield Restoration and Preservation Committee (DERP) invites you to participate in the 10th Annual Enfield Fishing Creek Paddle. This is a great paddle for both beginners and experienced paddlers.
