As many area boaters know, SMUD has been trying to facilitate access to the Slab Creek Reach below Slab Creek Dam for kayakers and rafters wishing to float the reach down to Mosquito Bridge and points west for several weeks now while our construction work downstream of the dam continues. I’d like to thank all of you that are using are process – call in advance to get the North Canyon gate unlocked and an escort provided to get you and your watercraft down to the put-in safely.
I’d like to ask all of you that have been using this process to reach out to me as I’m trying to put together a contact list of boaters active on the Slab Creek Reach. You can reach me at my SMUD email address:
You can also text me at: 916-718-4450 with your contact info. Ideally, please provide an email address and a phone contact.
For those of you that have registered for our two-week look-ahead Roads Condition webpage at our South Fork Power House website, SMUD is transitioning to a new format on it’s SMUD.org portal. Some of the links are off line until the final version is made public. If you have questions on road conditions, don’t hesitate to contact me at my email or phone listings above.
