Default Kayaks in middle of Big C

Damn near got me a pair of kayaks yesterday. They were totally oblivious. Out in the middle of the basin above Reed and below Rooster Rock. Kayaks were a mud green (about river color) and the 'yakers were wearing colors that blended in. Match that up with the off sky yesterday and I would have been very, very easy to just run right over them and not see them until too late.

Fortunately I caught a reflection off of a paddle and avoided them. My point though is how oblivious they were to the danger. No bright colors to contrast with the lighting and background. If these people are going to go out in the middle like that, they need an orange flag or something.

I have been well aware of kayakers up this way, but this particular incident spooked me. I could have pulled a buoy 10 like that dude a couple years ago.
