River Flows Explained
This is very family friendly and are considered rafting “float trips”. These flows are also kayak-friendly.
At this level we still require two good paddlers but the flow is on the lower end. You still need to be aware of trees at this level and lifejackets should be worn at all times. We do recommend that participants know to swim and you need to have at least one adult per child. Kayaks not allowed at 700CFS+.
This still requires two good paddlers per boat and everyone should know how to swim. The current changes and although this is a fun flow, more attention is required to stay safe. The one cooler per raft is strictly enforced. Lifejackets must be worn at all times. Alcohol is not allowed on rafts at 1000+ CFS.

We do not run commercial trips due to safety issues.
We will know projections for 2023 flows sometime in May. Flows are dependent on reservoir levels and rainfall totals. Please always check conditions before going out on the water: Stanislaus River Flows
Flows are subject to change rapidly as this is a dam controlled river. If conditions do change prior to a trip, we will update your group, and always give you the option to change dates or get a refund if the flow changes result in us having to change rules or restrictions.
