Class III-IV Truckee River, CA/NV

Floriston to Verdi (Bridge at I-80 - Floriston to Crystal Peak Park)

Most of this run consists of class II rapids which become fun class II/III at higher flows. Beware of three diversion dams on this section particularly as flows increase. Although they have been run at various times, they can also be deadly at certain flows. The most significant rapid on this section is Deadman's which can push class IV at higher flows with some big hydraulics. Here the river piles up against bedrock on river right.
