I'm looking to take my friend out paddling who is comfortable on class 3+ and wanted some recommendations. We've run Chili Bar and the Gorge a bunch and want to run something new of similar difficulty. We were looking at the Stanislaus River from the Camp 9 Powerhouse to Parrot's Ferry Bridge or has the New Melones reservoir taken all the fun out of it?
Another run we were looking into was the Kings River above Pine Flat reservoir.
California Creeks - Kings River
Looking for other recommendations as well! Thanks!!!
