The description given by Craig is for a different reach of the NF Yuba, the class IV run below Goodyears Bar. The section this is intended to be is the classV section below New Bullards bar. This can be run either from the 49 Bridge on the Middle Yuba or from below the New Bullards Bar dam on the North Yuba. It is very hard to find the required flows to run this section, the best bet is to wait for the Middle Yuba to be 700-800 with only fish flow from New Bullards Bar.

The put-in is typically across from the Indian Outpost bar on the North Fork Yuba at the Carlton Campground. Once the river flows under the Hwy 49 bridge, you pickup the Middle Fork Yuba within a mile and the river leaves all traces of roadway and drops into a committing canyon with punchy rapids and sweeping gravel bar rapids with holes interspersed.<br />
Setting shuttle for this run requires good reading of recent maps and talking to locals. The access at the takeout is remote. Hope for dry ground for your shuttle rig if not going all the way to the dam.<br />
Fun run with little room for errors. Amazing river canyon and very remote.
