AMERICAN RIVER

The American River is California’s classic Gold Country River. Its three forks rise in the High Sierra just west of Lake Tahoe and the Pacific Crest and flow west out of the mountains to merge with the Sacramento River in Sacramento. It’s on the South Fork of the American River that James Marshall discovered gold in 1848 and started the 49ers California Gold Rush, which settled the California Territory during turbulent times. The American River is also the birthplace of whitewater boating in California. It’s one of the most popular white water rivers in America.

The whitewater section between Placerville (starting at Chili Bar) and ending at Salmon Falls (Folsom Reservoir) is 21 miles of the most popular river found in the West. Depending on seasonal fluctuations and power releases, the water flows are normally at 1000 to 8000 cubic feet per second.
