The pacific northwest is blessed with great water all year round. That said, those who want a more action-packed adventure should try rafting during the spring when rain and snow melt bring the flows up. In general, summer flows are great for families and those interested in a more relaxing experience. That said, with many sections to choose from, exhilarating whitewater can be found all summer long.
