Has anyone kayaked there since the water level has been over 100 feet below normal? Any recommended itineries for a 3 or 4 day trip? Escalante Canyon sounds and looks good but how does one get there without paddling for days in the main channel or renting a houseboat as a base? Do I shlep a Klepper double or can one trust the advertisments of the kayak rental places?

Is anyone else interested in doing this?

David, there are a couple people on the Folbot Forum who frequent Lake Powell, and they can probably give you authoritative responses if you post over there.

in january, during the shutdown, I been there for 2 trips (each lasting 10 days) out of hall's crossings if someone has question. it was great and so quiet in winter but one has to be a good winter camper to manage the nights.
