All of us here at Truckee River Rafting would like to say "Thank you" to everyone who rafted with us this season! You all made this year an unforgettable  summer. We saw many families float multiple times due to some of the best water levels and weather we've had in years! We truly appreciate everyones patience during the peak times and hope all of our staff was courteous and professional from the start to finish.

I can't say enough about our staff this year... you were all amazing! We hope this will be a summer you'll remember and will bring a smile to your face. Safe travels to you all...

On a final note, I'd like to thank all our family members for all their love and support.  It would not be possible without them!  "A thousand cheers" to everyone and our beautiful Truckee River!!

This was exciting!!! We had some of this years Olympic Gold Medalists from the Women's Water Polo Team go rafting with us!  It was an honor to be in their presence!  So amazing for me!  Go USA!!!

We're having a very busy rafting season this year!  The water levels have been perfect and weather has been amazing.

At this time, I would like to thank all of our rafting staff for their high level of service. I appreciate your enthusiasm and commitment to help every rafting customer.  I know at times the job can be very demanding and during August's high volume of rafters, we all get a bit low on energy.

You're ALL doing great! Remember, take a deep breath, smile, enjoy working outside, and know you're appreciated by every guest and me!

JULY 10, 2012

Rafting on the Truckee River has been excellent this season! The July 4th holiday had perfect weather in the upper 70's to mid 80's.  Water conditions have also been amazing with flows at 350 cfs, which is just perfect!

There's only one problem... with water flows at this rate, your rafting trip will be faster.  We've had some rafters make the trip in 1 1/2 hours and wish it had taken a bit longer!  So, our advise is to take your time and enjoy!!

Many "thanks" to everyone who has rafted with us...and again, if you have any comments, please let us know  and if you had fun on your trip, give us a "thumbs up" on our "like" button!

JUNE 21, 2012

Rafting on the Truckee River this season has been very good!  Now, water levels are up around 270 cfs, which is almost perfect. Our ideal cfs (cubic feet per second) is about 350 cfs, give or take 50 cfs. We could be in that range within the next few days.

So water wise, we couldn't be happier!  As for the weather, they're expecting some windy conditions and a bit cooler temps for the weekend.

Give us a call if you'd like more info or follow our blog and facebook!

The water level is inching up everyday and should be perfect flows soon!

See ya on the "River", Ryan

Today we opened for the summer rafting season. We anticipate a great season with lots of water. Our flows today were 160cfs and will continue to increase over the next couple days. We look forward to river flows around 300 to 400cfs this year, which will be a whole lot better than last years releases. Give us a call at (530) 583-1111 for more info and reservations or visit our new reservation page for online discounts. Have a happy summer!
