Wenatchee River Rafting Guide
The Wenatchee River is known as “Washington’s Greatest Play Run” for all the surf spots peppered along the way. You’ll find rafters, kayakers, SUPs, and river boarders in droves most weekends in the spring and summer or during winter and fall rains. At super low flows (<3,000cfs), prepare for a significantly less splashy, technical run with a good bit of flat water. At moderate flows (3kcfs – 10kcfs), you’ll find a lot of good, clean lines with the waves and holes just growing as the flows do. Higher flows can flush some features out, but it also brings other random spots to life. Be prepared for the waves and holes; there are many opportunities to show off your ability to flip a raft.
