It's a sunny June 1st afternoon here at IRIE Rafting HQ. Our morning Truckee trip just came back all smiles and stories about big excitement in Jaws rapid. That's right, my fellow humans, rafting season is already well upon us. We've been running trips for the past month or so on rivers all over the region, including loads of fun commercial trips on the Truckee, and the only thing we're missing is you.

There have been some rumors going around that there won't be any water in the rivers this season due to the small snowpack we experienced this past winter. Well, no one here is going to deny that it was a pretty disappointing ski season, but luckily that doesn't mean we won't have a good whitewater boating season. Thanks to guaranteed dam releases, we will have 7-day-a-week rafting all summer long. This includes class III rafting on the mighty Truckee River, and class IV rafting on the Middle Fork American River going, through Labor Day at least.

So put aside those sour memories of missed powder days, bust out your board shorts and bikinis and get ready for a great summer of whitewater action with IRIE. We're here every day.
