The flows will be held at 800 cfs until about 3 p.m. that day as flows are gradually reduced to 700 cfs.

  On Sunday, Oct. 28, starting at about 1 p.m., flows will be gradually decreased until flows reach about 210 cfs later that day. Those recreating in or near the river are encouraged to use extra caution during the increased flows.

  The Rock Creek Reach is the 8.3-mile portion of the North Fork Feather River in the Plumas National Forest between PG&E’s Rock Creek Dam and the Rock Creek Powerhouse near Storrie.

  The recreational flows are done in cooperation with American Whitewater and the Rock Creek-Cresta Ecological Resource Committee. The recreational flows were postponed from late August due to the Chips Fire, which began July 31 and was fully contained Aug. 31.
