River Description

Put in access seems to be a major problem on this reach.   Boaters must hike around the dam or hike in from side roads and Yuba County Water Agency (YWCA) considers that trespassing on their lands.   Fortunately a number of power projects owned by this agency are presently up for FERC relicensing.   This may provide an opportunity to gain better boating access to this and other important reaches on the Yuba River.
