Colorado Parks and Wildlife is reminding Paddlers to Be Cautious in Windy Conditions and Know the Dangers of Cold Water.

They say the best safety precaution anyone can take is to wear a life jacket at all times while out on the water. Sudden immersion in cold water can cause gasping and inhalation of water and hypothermia, resulting in unconsciousness or swimming failure as muscles become numb.

They remind paddlers to Check the weather report before you go to the lake, and watch the conditions while you are there.
