Just Two Guys

We are just two guys; best friends who live for the great outdoors.

Shortly after Russ and I met he introduced me to Wenonah Canoes, and canoeing and canoe camping on the Willamette River which flows through Portland, Oregon. I fell in love with canoeing the NW immediately. Within a few months we decided to start dealing Wenonah Canoes. Russ as The “Canoeru” and I as Paddle People’s marketing man. It’s been a wild river run from that point…

Russ Woodward & Jeff Catlin

Paddle People is our outlet for sharing our enthusiasm for canoe paddling and love for the Pacific Northwest. We believe paddling and camping is some of the most effective “Recreational Therapy” there is.

Nature & exercise are the best medicine for our high stress lives. We are always trying to figure out how to spend more time in our canoes, and less time in the “rat race”. We’d appreciate it if you would let us be your “Canoe Guys”, you can check out the canoes for sale here.

Let us know how we can help you get the right Wenonah Canoe for your paddling adventures.

Happy paddling! -Russ & Jeff
