Mokelumne - Tiger Creek & Electra 2021 Releases

Annually, in accordance with the negotiated 2001 License Order and Settlement Agreement for the Mokelumne River Hydropower Project, American Whitewater coordinates recreational releases with Pacific Gas & Electric, the Ecological Resource Committee including the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service. These annual releases are determined by the water year type which is predicated on the forecasted inflow into the downstream Pardee Reservoir. This year’s water year type is Critically Dry which allows for recreational flows on Tiger Creek and Electra in May & June.

Scheduled recreational releases for 2021 are as follows:

Tiger Creek 700 cfs 10 am - 2 pm

May 14( Fri),15 (Sat),22 (Sat),23 (Sun),29 (Sat), & 30 (Sun)

June 5 (Sat),12 (Sat),19 (Sat), & 26 (Sat)

One caveat to remember is PG&E is still working on repairing the washed-out road from the take-out to the put-in along Tiger Creek. The good news is that PG&E has started on these repairs. The bad news is, unfortunately, this work will not be completed until July 2021. Paddlers will need to plan accordingly and use Highway 88 to Tiger Creek Road then drive down past the Tiger Creek afterbay to reach the put-in by vehicle.

Electra 700 cfs 10 am - 4 pm

May 29 (Sat), 30 (Sun)

June 5 (Sat), 12 (Sat)
