River Description


Ideal levels for the San Juan hole are between 1,400 and 3,100 cfs with 2,100 cfs primo. At 1,400 cfs it is a shallow, rocky and sticky hole; at 2,100 cfs it is a gently retentive hole that is great for cartwheels and loops; at 3,100 cfs it is a very fast wave with a foam pile that still gives up spins, blunts and an end or two.

See the bottom of Bill Tuthill's California Creekin' American River Main Stem for directions to the put-in/take-out of this park 'n play spot. See also the Sacramento County Park Department's directions to the Rossmoor Bar access area (one of Bill's suggested put-ins).

There have been multiple reports of break-ins at the put-in/take-out parking area so it would be wise to take Bill's advise and leave nothing valuable in your car.
