Summer Flows on the Middle Fork American River
The Middle Fork American River trips are guaranteed all summer long every year. The flows on this river come from the Oxbow Dam in Foresthill, CA. Although snowpack levels in the mountains are low, trips will be available starting Saturday May 21st running thru September 30th. Flows will be guaranteed on certain days of the week (up to Labor Day weekend).
The Middle Fork American River is a popular rafting option for Class 4 white water as well as Class 2 wilderness family floats. Trips can be a half day, full day or overnight wilderness or combo with the South Fork American River.
