Mid-October Rafting Flow Update: Say Hello to the South Fork

Posted October 14, 2009 by Malina

Don’t let the Christmas displays barging into your life from annoying retailers disuade you–it is actually NOT the dead of winter yet, and we are NOT hosting Mr. and Mrs. Claus and company on a rafting trip. 

It’s October, the colors are changing, the hills are golden and the water on the South Fork of the American River is flowing well–about 1200-1600 CFS pretty much everyday the water is “up.”  (The “off” days are just fish flow–too low for rafting)  The season on the Middle Fork is officially kaput so your option now is the upper or lower run of the South Fork, both of which have super fun class III rapids.
