This is a really awesome run that should be high on any boaters list. If you are in California and it just happens to be running be sure not to miss it. We were fortunate enough that there was construction on a turbine and they needed to release into the run. With flows around 1000cfs we set off towards Mammoth Pools reservoir. I was happy to get two laps on this beautiful run in November of 2011.
