Recreational boating closures on the California Delta
« on: February 28, 2017, 06:03:36 PM »
I'm at a loss to understand why these closures weren't imposed a lot sooner ...

Here are two links to river closures to recreational boating on the California Delta:

Hope it's not "too little, too late".  Stay safe Chris and Tom.

I've navigated the lower portions of the rivers here in TX following flooding rain and it can be quite treacherous.  The rivers drain forested areas that can have a large amount of large debris.  I can see why they'd initiate the closure.

Sometimes it stretches credibility when the mountains give up their accumulated debris and send it down California rivers.  Our first retirement home was in Redding, very near Shasta Lake.  The debris flowing into the lake from the Pitt River, Sacramento River, and McCloud River is, at times, overpowering.  That's when knowledgeable boaters just stay off the lake.  California has wonderful weather, most of the time.  When Mother Nature takes over, it's wise to beware and be safe.
