Daily - The post-monsoon season (July-August) is ideal for desired flow and warmer temperatures, when swimming is a treat. Late winter and early spring (January-April) are also excellent times to go. During this time, flow is more consistent due to snowmelt, which also means we will rappel along some icy waters. With proper equipment such as dry tops, commonly used for paddling, this season can be very enjoyable.
