The North Yuba River Rafting trips are available in the Spring with the snowmelt as there is no dam to control the flows. These are Class 4-5 trips and although some are suitable for first timers (with good swimming abilities), the whitewater is challenging. This river is part of the Wild. This area is very popular for fishing and Downieville is well known for its mountain biking.
This river is very special to us at Tributary Whitewater Tours. Our Owner Dan Buckley helped pioneer this river for commercial rafting in the early 80’s. Today there are still only 3 commercial rafting permits issued for this river. Check back here soon for some old school Yuba River Trip Photos!!
We offer several trips from 1 day to a 4 day overnight with camping. Check out some of these amazing options!
