Comprehensive Review!

Great book for those looking to break into the sport, and keep themselves safe by not taking on rivers they can't yet handle!

ATTN Rafting River Runners

I have found this book a valuable resource for anyone planning to run rivers in CA. Although I am focusing on the Upper/Lower Kern River...the book provides specifics of different water-craft running sections of rivers, logistics, and most importantly...details on the section run. It outlines most of the major rapids and what to look for (keepers, boulders, other fun objects). However, it does NOT subsititue for scouting the rapids!! Additionally, although I truly love the format, detailed information, and humerous descriptions of trips, some rapids are left out and are not even shown on the know the rivers in addition to reading this great resource!

The essential guide book for California whitewater boaters

Whatever your ability or source of flotation, this guide book will enhance your river running experience. Each river stretch is rated for difficulty, suitability to different kinds of boats, recommended water levels, permits required, managing agencies, scenery, solitude, camp sites, etc., and the mile-by-mile guide rates the difficulty of each major rapid including notes on how to run them and when to portage, river access, etc. The book is very well indexed, including a special index of easy whitewater to help newcomers find forgiving waterways on which to practice their boating skills.
