Fish Trap Rapid

Mile: 14.17

Rating: Class III

GPS: 35.55687, -118.60876

Description: Straightforward Class III whitewater. The river bends to the right, follow the wave train. At higher flows, there is a small lateral bottom left of the rapid, but it’s of little consequence.

Fish Trap Rapid shown at high water. As you can see, it’s nothing to really worry about, just fun waves. Bottom left there is a slight lateral which can catch you off guard, but it’s easy to see and square up to.

Below Fish Trap Rapid on River Right is a drainage that leads from Highway 178. This is a good landmark if you’re trying to figure out where you are.
