|WEBER RIVER NEAR OAKLEY, UT|
|usgs-10128500||400 - 1200 cfs||I-II+(III)||00h54m||62.9 cfs (too low)|
One of the more scenic rivers in northern Utah, class II - III- with some wood avoidance, ~9
miles. Beautiful. Ideal for inflatables and light weight kayaks. Two mandatory portages. Several
runnable drops. Ideal level 600 cfs, runnable down to ~450, 1000+ cfs is scary.
Access is an issue. Although unsigned, there is a DNR river access through the Aspen Acres (Shoshone Rd) green gate. Park in the large dirt pull out on the north side of the road and hike down to the river. This launch is just above where Smith and Morehouse enters and increases the size of the Weber. The New Lane Rd takeout is just downstream from a dam that diverts ~3/4 of the river into a canal.
