Swift currents and wide horizons make this an attractive float trip. Along this stretch of river, wide channels and low banks allow expansive views of Mt. Shasta, the Trinity Alps, and Lassen Peak. Winter flows from the Sacramento’s many tributaries move the channel frequently, creating new oxbows and cutoffs. A floatable channel one year may be a sandbar the next year. Several units of the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge protect and restore 9 miles of waterfowl and fish habitats along the west bank between Craig Creek and the mouth of Elder Creek. Easy-to-see summer species include osprey, turkey vultures, red-tailed hawks, and some bald eagles. Look for some of them perched on the tall cottonwood snags or oaks along the banks.
