Spring River Flow Update

Posted May 27, 2009 by Malina

The snowmelt pumped lots of extra water into the Merced River this spring, and although our guides report from their riverside lookouts that we’re no longer in “peak flow” time, we still have plenty of H20 on the mighty Mer. 

tuThe Tuolumne River is also still seeing good n’ high water, so don’t miss the boat there either.  The flows in the Tuolumne watershed are high enough that we’ll have to wait until later in the summer than last year for class V rafting trips on Cherry Creek.  But higher flows on the “T” are fantastic and more than make up for the wait.  Even our Creek guides would agree (maybe just a leeeeetle bit grudgingly) with that one.

Down south toward LA, the Kaweah River has normal water at this point, but remains the technical and challenging class IV run we know and love.  This intermediate-advanced run is an adventurous way to escape the smog of So Cal.
