Klickitat River Area

I'm camping near Lyle, WA over Labor Day weekend. I was wondering if the Klickitat River can be done individually without using a tour company. We have two person seacraft rafts that we have taken on the lower Clackamas River from McIver to Carver. I found on a fishing website the recommendation to put-in at Guaging Station at end of Road K1410 and take-out at Leidl Bridge. I'm wondering if the rapids will be manageable given it is late in the season.

Anyone have experience on the Klickitat River without a guide?

As I haven't been on the Klickitat myself I can't offer guidelines, however, our whole water system is very high this year. So you should be aware that can make the river more dangerous.

Good luck with your trip.

I spoke to a gentleman friend and he said the river is coming down and it's rafted all the time. I would say since it's not as high as it was in July, you should have no problems.

Be very safe and alert though.
