California rafting flow updatePosted September 1, 2008 by Malina
UPDATE 9/29/08: Extension on class IV rafting trips! The Middle Fork of the American River will have good raftable flows through October.
Now that we’re into September, options for California rafting trips have changed a little bit. Flows for the Tuolumne and Cherry Creek are no longer high enough for rafting. After a last hurrah on Cherry Creek September 1st (a day for guides to have some fun and paddle their bootys off–and maybe even test their class V skills for the first time, congratulations, how exciting!!!), our intrepid T and Creek guides will be packing up their gear, squirrel-proofing their storage bins, and heading home.
They won’t have that much time to rest, however, as the South and Middle Forks of the American River continue to run into the fall. We will offer class III trips on the South Fork into October, and class IV trips on the Middle Fork will run strong through the end of September. If you’re on the fence about which river to book, check out our river rafting videos to get a better sense of how the South and Middle Fork differ.
Another option–way off the beaten path–is the Upper Klamath River, to which we’ll be venturing September 13-14. Upper Klamath Rafting trips are a treat for guides and guests alike–don’t miss the chance to join us if you’re a fan of challenging class IV whitewater.
