Be Aware of Increased Water Flows on the Feather River this Weekend


The final increase in recreational whitewater flow will take place this weekend on the North fork of the Feather River for this season.

PG&E will increase river flows on the 8.3-mile stretch of the Feather River between the Rock Creek dam and rock creek powerhouse near Storrie, Flow will be increased to 800 cubic feet per second producing class 3 to 5 rapids. These rapids are not suitable for tubes and are only meant for skilled paddlers.

By Sunday after 2 pm flows will gradually decrease back to seasonal flows.

Each year PG&E works together with the American Whitewater organization to host four weekends of increased whitewater recreation during the summer months.
