Granby River Professional Review and Guide
"Only skeletons remain from the railroads, smelter, and dam that once rumbled, belched, and clogged the Granby River Valley near Grand Forks, British Columbia. May they rest in peace. At its source, the river remains undefiled. The Granby begins in a roadless wilderness of the southern Monashee Mountains and flows freely for 65 miles to its confluence with the Kettle River. The paddling options here attract a spectrum ranging from whitewater kayaking junkies to little kids in inflatable duckies. Prime time is late June and the first few weeks of July, when the water warms; flows are just high enough for good paddling but low enough to expose the numerous sandy beaches."
