Klamath River: John C. Boyle Power Plant to Copco Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This dam-release run provides paddlers with some of the most exciting “brownwater” in the Northwest. Brownwater? The Klamath drains warm and shallow Upper Klamath Lake, which supports an abundant growth of algae during the summer.

The results are beautiful brownwater rapids and suds-filled slack water. Do not let that deter you from wetting your blades in this challenging river. The thick foam is only decaying algae from the lake. At the normal release of 1500 cfs, this run boasts two class 5, five class 4, thirteen class 3, and twenty-five class 2 rapids. Character: roadless."
