River Difficulty vs. Flow Rate.

class flow (cfs)
IV 200 - 1200

Description - Bear Creek.

Flows rise rapidly during rainstorms and then drop rapidly after the rains stop. Although Hwy16 is close to the creek for a considerable distance, this lightly traveled road does not detract from the boating experience or the scenery at creek-level. (Colusa County, California, USA)
