The Yuba Gap was high on the list for Will and I. We messed up along with about 30 other paddlers on the first day it ran by assuming the water was too low based on the way the put in looked. We headed back a few days later with a shuttle driver and put on by ourselves with slightly lower water to find yet another amazing stretch of river in the South Yuba drainage. Halfway through the run Lil Dave and Ben Coleman cought up with us and were able to speed the pace of things with their prior knowledge of the gorge. Sweet run definitely keep your eye out for this one- I think you want 250 to 400 in there. We showed up at 700 one day to find a solid team hiking out after the first mile. The take out is the same take out as Canyon Creek so you cane even multi task.
