River Description

The stretch of water offers area paddlers some wonderful play opportunities. Between 2000-2600 cfs three large play waves form where the river intersects with CR202 and Bear Creek. Eddy service is available on the left. However, because of the canyon walls and waterfall just to the left of the waves, this is not really an ideal park-and-play spot. At this level constant wave trains and plenty of other play holes and waves will keep you entertained.

At lower levels other features appear, including one great wave just before crossing Highway 183 and a surfing hole just below the 183 bridge.
