USA destination recommendations Class 4-5

Hey Buzzards!

I am looking for a few recommendations on good paddling locations throughout the continental USA. I am not doing a road trip to hit everything but looking for a good location with water in the coming months. Preferably Class 4-5. But most important is water. what is flowing this winter in the USA? please dont think i am asking for your secret spots...I am looking for note worthy recommendations of flowing water for about a week long trip, maybe a bit more. How is Cali, Oregon during the winter? Thanks in advance!

The Pac. NW should be coming online shortly. I hear that the Green Truss is running and the rest of the Hood River zone should be coming in. Bring your drysuit.

hood river is awesome. There are some durango guys up there right now too. tons of great runs within 20 minutes drive and plenty of people to boat with. la nina year too so should be plenty of water.

Hood river, portland, or eugene are probably the best choices, but there is a surprising amount of paddling to be had around arcata CA also (especially playboating in the ocean). However, the oregon/washington paddling is probably better.
