Late season runs in Cali?

Moving to Cali for a while and was wondering if there are any late season runs to do the end of august. I have a kayak but I was hoping for a river to take a few friends in Cali down in a raft. Looking for a Class III or higher for rafting and kayaking I am a solid III kayaker maybe low IV

I second that. You can run the T mostly class IV, with Clavey as a V. Runs til late Aug, maybe early Sept, maybe... Fun raft or kayak. SouthFork of the American is very popular Class III. You can probably run that all the way to Oct on the weekends, as long as they are letting the water go.
The T is just north of Yosemite, American is just outside Sacramento.

The Lower Kern (Miracle to Democrat) is running 2000cfs: solid Class IV. Raftable, but your stated kayak skill level would be pushed at that flow.

One fairly easy portage for rafts and kayaks (Royal Flush). In about a month the flow will drop to 700=800, which is also fine for rafts/kayaks.
