This wonderful section of clear California whitewater is popular with commercial rafters, private
rafters and kayakers.
Gorgeous oak trees lining the shores of the North Fork Yuba river combine with melting snow from the high mountain passes to make granite pool drop rapids.
Putting in at Goodyears Bar necessitates a slow drive over the bridge and down the road to the putin. Be courteous and conscientious at the Putin here in Goodyears Bar please.
There are many great rapids in this section.
Maytag gets everyones attention. Scout from river left, head's up for Son of Maytag.
Wild and Free may the North Yuba River always be!
