WoooHoooo, all the guides get excited about this one and you should too. The annual release of the water stored up In Rimrock lake every season to irrigate the Yakima valley gives us a fantastic opportunity to play on the waters of this fun river. Their are no big drops or water falls on this run, just 15 miles of continuous rapids and big wave trains through the Ponderosa pines and unique columnar basalt formations through the Tieton river valley. Since this run is outside of Yakima Wa and on the East side of the Cascades the weather is usually fantastic. Even the water is warm due to the fact that it has been stored up behind a damn all summer long just waiting to be released.
Due to construction ongoing on the damn their is going to be a better than normal release this year. This river is very fun and should not be missed.
Come out for some fantastic runs down the Tieton River!
see ya on the river-Jeff
