This is a peaceful mountain valley paddle, complete with fun riffles, deep swimming holes, and a trout-stocked river that is navigable most of summer. This tranquil river trip combines perfect conditions for lazily paddling through a beautiful mountain valley, and swims and picnics at sandy beaches along the way. The river is stocked with trout, and we’ve seen many large ones here. This section is fairly untamed: not too many houses are in sight, and you will have to watch out for “strainers” (trees that have blown down into the river) particularly when the water is high in spring or after prolonged heavy rainfall.
