Washington State River Info?

Hello fellow Buzzards! I'm planning a trip to ski and kayak out in Wa in late May/early June and was wondering what the best Class III, IV, and easy V rivers/stretches are out there. I've been told the Wenatchee and Icicle rivers are fun. Any other suggestions/comments about the boating?? I would like to just bring a playboat so probably nothing too difficult. I love everything from the Grand to Numbers on the Arkansas and 10 Mile, the more scenic the better!!
Thanks so much!
V.

Make sure you come through Hood River / White Salmon for access to the Truss, Wind, Upper East Fork Hood and other treats.

If flows are right, you want to hit the Cooper ond/or China Gorge of the Cle Elum. super scenic granite IV-V. might be cranking high though.

Little Wenatchee. Peshastin Creek. Don't forget about Farmlands on the white salmon. If it still has water, hit the WF Hood. Lots of the sky drainage tribs will be going. Top tye, Foss, miller, rapid, etc. Might be worth the drive around Jack's Pass to do a full NF + Main sky combo.

enjoy the trip. it's a great time of year and you'll have tons of options.
