Fraser Canyon BC

Driving to Alaska

Trying to figure my plans for whitewater south of Smithers. Some of the runs I have done, I haven't done the Fraser Canyon. (Hells Gate)

All the videos online look like only huge rafts run it, I see nothing about any kayaking on that section. I like huge water.

Looks pretty nasty and huge you might talk with the rafting companies about it. Are you running the Thompson? Great big water run this time of year. The Chilko- Chilcotin is pretty kick a$$. We did a couple years ago it is glacier fed so when it is really hot the Chilko really comes up they should have peak flows right about now. We did it in late July early August and it was running bank full in a dry year but it was really hot up there so the glacier melt really kicked in. Have fun we did it in a raft.

These folks might be able to give you some information they are in Williams Lake but they had an avid kayaker on staff he helped us with shuttle arrangements. Red Shreds Bike & Board Shed | Williams Lake, BC, Canada
