Cal Salmon Rafting Guidebook
The California Salmon (known to many as the Cal Salmon) is a tributary to the Klamath River in Northern California. The Cal Salmon is an undammed Wild & Scenic River, so you’ll have to keep in mind wildly fluctuating flows, especially during the rainy season. The waters of the Cal Salmon are some of the purest in Northern California, at lower flow, the water will often take on a beautiful aquamarine hue. This section of the river boasts two notorious Class V rapids, Cascade and Freight Train. As you might guess, there is excellent fishing here as well as powerful whitewater. The Cal Salmon cuts its way through a deep gorge, as it works its way to the Klamath River. Just a side note, this river is actually named the Salmon River, but to avoid confusion with the much larger Salmon River in Idaho, many boaters refer to this short, powerful river as the Cal Salmon.
