Early August 2013 Rafting Flow Update

Posted August 6, 2013 by Malina

P1010651How in tar-nay-shun did it get to be August already?  The wheel in the sky just keeps on turnin….but if you don’t know where you’ll be tomorrow I’m here to tell you you should *journey* out to the river!  Journey? Get it? eesh. 

Anyway, the puns may be bad, and it may be getting late in the summer, but there are plenty of options for California rafting.

If you’re looking for a trip that will please everyone on your list from young kids to Granny and Grandpa, look no further than the South Fork.  Class III rapids, easy access, a little Gold Rush history–easy.

On the hunt for the most river miles for your buck?  May I suggest the Middle Fork.  It’s a little more thrilling than the South Fork, and you get about 18 miles of whitewater, beautiful scenery, and relaxing calm stretches.  This is a full full day rafting.MF put in by sam p  Value baby, value.

Further south (near Yosemite actually, if you fancy a little State Park action this summer too) is the beautiful Tuolumne River.  The “T” as we call it around here, is actually two rivers in one.  The lower stretch is known as the Main Tuolumne, and this time of year it’s an action-packed class III-IV run.  The upper section is more commonly known as Cherry Creek, and it’s a turbo-action-packed class V run.  Class V as in it ust doesn’t get any harder than this if you want to book a commercial rafting trip.  Adrenaline junkies who are comfortable in water only!

So there you have it–from mild to wild, August 2013 flows on California rivers deliver.  For more details on specific CFS on all the rivers we run, check out our real-time river flow graphs.
