Hey CA..have you seen the Merced? Any idea when it might be good for a ww trip down river? May or June? I'm have 2 ww capable inflatables (Saturns) and one yak will have 2 people on board so prefer to let the water quiet down a bit. Suggestions on the best put in/take out? Any rivers down your area I'm missing? We have a trip down the S. Fork of the American (out of Lotus) in two weeks when daughter visits. Middle Fork looks outstanding as does our N. Fork with some Class IV sections. It's one heck of a water year!!

Definitely! With this much water, the Merced should be running into mid or late June, perhaps even July. Which section do you plan to run in your Saturns?

The easiest stretch is up in the park (requires admission fee).

The next easiest stretch is from the old suspension bridge at mile 10 to somewhere above class 4 Split Rock and Corner Pocket.

Hopefully I'll remember to contact you before our annual trip up there!

Thanks much for the links, appreciated. I'll keep in touch as this looks to be a June trip. The people in the tandem are not ww people so a bit calmer water would be best.
