Can anyone speak to the air quality in and around Coloma this weekend? Thinking of heading there Sunday, but would love to know if it's going to be super smokey and make alternative plans.

I was just in the Meadow Lake area and had some distant views of Fordyce Lake. Seems like they're still storing plenty of water. Anyone know if they're likely to have boatable releases before winter, ...

Drove down to Kingvale to look at the gauge this morning. Was reading 16" at 9 am. Not sure how to correlate this to the Cisco gauge, as it's probably more than an hour downstream of Kingvale ...

Did Fordyce on Friday (7/16) and came across a bad log. It's the drop directly below the only place on the run where an old log spans the river about four feet above the water. After you duck under ...

As of yesterday, the put-in road was accessible to 4WD vehicles to within about 1/2 mile of Fordyce Summit. We hiked in for about 45 minutes, then paddled across Fordyce Lake for another 20 minutes. ...

So is this for real? It'd be nice if we had a spring season this year? This isn't a continuation of the flow study is it?

In case anyone's wondering, it's HUGE right now. Probably close to 1000 cfs above Castle Creek. Oh, and it's also just about freezing out, so conditions are a bit south of optimal.

The issue with this run is the many highly questionable drops. If you assume that they're all portages, you might call what's left over Class IV-V with Class VI portages. However, if you're gonna ...

I have not been living/boating in Cali for very long, so it's surprising to me that I knew that the S.F. Feather was releasing last weekend and so few others did. Basically, my friend here in Truckee ...
