The portage is about one quarter mile below Humbug Creek, which enters on river right. Portage over the granite slabs on river left.
Thank you for your nice description. I just ran washington to edwards for the first time and had fun at 500 cfs.
Check river flows at Jones Bar Gauge.
This reach usually has water in the winter and the spring. It is run anywhere above 1000 cfs (6.5 feet). Class IV boaters tend to like the lower flows between 1000 and 2000 cfs. Above 2000 cfs, the run becomes more difficult and is certainly entertaining for the strong Class V boater at flows of 5000 to 10000 cfs.
Permits are not required for this reach.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Culminating a six-year effort, American Whitewater has reached significant flow agreements for the Yuba watershed. These agreements were memorialized in the amended license applications filed with FERC by the Nevada Irrigation District and Pacific Gas & Electric Company. We look forward to seeing you enjoying improved flows in the Yuba watershed!
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
