Truckee River Rafting Season Opening

The following media alert was released yesterday from North Lake Tahoe Resort Association:

The dam gates are open and the river is flowing, and rafting along North Lake Tahoe’s scenic Truckee River from Tahoe City to River Ranch is now open.

Tahoe City-based Mountain Air Sports/Truckee River Rafting opened today, Friday, August 5. Truckee River Raft Company anticipates opening, Saturday, August 6. The companies offer self-guided, five-mile floats down the Truckee River.

The delay in this summer’s rafting season was due to a banner snow year and lingering snowpack, which kept downstream flows above the federally regulated minimums required before water can be let out of Lake Tahoe.

Most trips are leisurely and take two to three hours to complete, with patrons exiting at River Ranch Lodge near Alpine Meadows Road along Highway 89. Guests can park in Tahoe City and take free shuttles back to their vehicles after the float anytime before 6 p.m. Hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily (weather permitting) and footwear is mandatory. Trips include parking, shuttle, paddles, life jackets and commercial rafts for 2-20 people. Group rates are available.
