2018 Whitewater Outlook...

There will be good flows on The Truckee River and Middle Fork American River ALL SUMMER LONG due to water releases from various dams that feed those rivers. Early dam operation forecasts indicate standard releases on the Truckee River From April thru August and recreational releases 7 days a week on the Middle Fork American. Flows on the North Fork American River and Carson River are not controlled by dams and thus depend on snow melt. At this point the season on both the carson and the North Fork looks to be short (April-May) but that is changeing as more and more snow is falling at the end of winter.
