White Sulphur Springs
Easy to Moderate
Sharp bends with currents flowing into cliff walls, snags, narrow channels, and float-through fences; sudden, intense lightning or windstorms. Rattlesnakes, bears, and raccoons may cause problems if you fail to keep a clean camp.
May 15 to July 1 is the prime Smith River floating period, so those seeking solitude go in April and September.
