Hi all,

Has anyone been down this section of the Truckee river yet? We want to go in our 2 man kayak. We've don this route for years, but this is a record year. We went in 2011, which was the last time the water was high and everything worked out fine. However, we are hearing the it may not be safe now.

Not sure of the section between Verdi and Mayberry but the commercial rafting companies have been running it. You might want to portage the dam 2 miles downstream of Mayberry there has been some incidents with rafts getting caught in the large hole at the base of the dam.

We did it yesturday on IK's at 3200 Cfs, excellent run at these flows! Fun class II+ with the exception of the "gorilla falls" diversion dam which looked sketchy but my friend ran it no problem. Portage left in hard to see clearing and walk through back part of trailer park.
