Forks of the Kern in California. It is possible in a day (actually easier because it is a pain to carry overnight gear down the trail 2 miles to the put in) but the river is so fun and the camping so good it is worth doing as a multi-day trip.

Thanks for all the good info! I am going to start planning, begging, borrowing, and stealing for my next trip. Any other suggestions are welcome.

There is nothing class 4-5 about the box, and that is coming from the biggest sandbagger on this forum

This site offers some great suggestions they have trip reports about the various runs, they list class IV-V creeks and rivers. Cal Salmon river is also a great run. Oregon Kayaking look at the creeks and rivers section. Deer Creek is on the list.

Come in from the top (or the res.) and pack for one night. Also, don't bring or read any beta other than what you may already know.
I heard the the Stikine is a great warm up if you are getting into class IV/V multi-days. Like they said above, Its best to go in without any Beta to keep the edge of exploration boating.

The Tuolumne might meet your criteria.
