Seldom paddled, the stream meanders among bushy gravel bars and orchards. Released from the confines of Rumsey Canyon, Cache Creek meanders along the steep hills bordering the east side of Capay Valley. Rich in almond and walnut orchards, their blossoms make the valley beautiful in the late winter and early spring. The stream banks support a variety of orchards, tamarisk islands, pampas grass, bamboo, and the usual cottonwoods, willows, and oaks. Great blue heron, egrets, osprey, and other large birds are commonly visible near the water, while turkey vultures soar overhead. The gravel bars are wider here but the land is private, so no camping is allowed. The stream intersperses a mixture of Class I riffles, bushy islands, and cut banks between the quiet pools and runs. You can easily see the most difficult whitewater rapid immediately upstream of the take-out at Guinda.
