Early May Flow Update

May 10th, 2013 by Malina

P1000166 2It’s happened.  It’s time to say goodbye to the North Fork of the American and the Kaweah for 2013.  We weren’t lyin’ when we told you free-flowing rivers would have short and sweet seasons this year!  After taking just a few lucky folks down these rivers this spring  their seasons are now done and done.

But fear not Dear Reader!  The Merced River is still alive and kickin’ with good water and sunny skies.  Class III and IV rapids await you just outside Yosemite!  And hey, after you’re done with the Merced, call in sick and take another day to see the Tuolumne–it may not be a high water year but 2000 CFS thrumpin’ down Clavey Falls is more than enough to get your blood flowing or my name’s not Malina.

May weekends on the Middle Fork American are a good option closer to Sacramento (after May there will be water midweek too). And………… of course the South Fork is beautiful and crowd-free this time of year as well.
