South Fork American River, below South Fork Powerhouse
The South Fork American River follows a deep, lightly forested canyon which is usually not boatable. During whitewater boating releases, experienced rafters and kayakers will find Class V whitewater. This is accessible from the streamgage below South Fork Powerhouse, which is located at the end of a steep walk past a locked gate along Slab Creek Reservoir Road (Forest Road 11N96).
This streamgage is not currently reporting real-time data. The data is being logged locally and will be available next year through the USGS website or upon written request.
