The Mighty Truckee is nearly walkable in the section between Tahoe City and Truckee at West River Street . With Tahoe being within 1 foot of the natural rim, the flow right now is as low as it's been in years and there are rocks everywhere and river-bottom showing that is usually underwater (even in the "low" flow times of the year).

Over here at Truckee River Taxi we are still getting calls from people who are trying to launch kayaks and rafts. Our advice is to walk/drive the section you are interested in before you launch to get a realistic view of just how low the conditions are right now and be prepared to spend some time on the river (pack extra drinking water, etc). And remember, there's a big lake next door if you just want to get that kayak out on some water. We are happy to scoop you up mid-river, but be aware that cell phone service is sketchy between Tahoe City and Alpine Meadows. Happy floating!
