The Scott river is a lesser known sister river to the California Salmon and shares many of its attributes. It is an incredible and seldom run river with world-class whitewater. However, the Scott’s whitewater is more technical and continues in nature with long complex boulder gardens laced with steep drops. Overall it is true high adventure trip set in a beautiful canyon with some of the best technical class V whitewater in California.

The Scott drains more southern aspects then the ‘Cal’ Salmon so the season is short and tends to end about 2 weeks before the Salmon. The river is part of our 3 day / 3 night California Salmon trip – together they make one of the ultimate class V adventures in the country. The Scott also makes a great day trip from Ashland for experienced paddlers looking for a quick and classic Class V whitewater run.
