That's because of an arrangement between recreational companies and the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.

SMUD has agreed to release water flows for hydro-electric generation at times when rafters are out on the water, primarily on the weekends.

Scott Armstrong owns All-Outdoors California Whitewater Rafting.

On Capital Public Radio's Insight today, Armstrong said weekday rafting could be a little too calm...

"...There will be water on weekends, there'll be water at good flows. It'll be a little bit less than it has been in the last couple of years. But because of the agreement and because of what SMUD has to release anyway for hydro-power, we will have good recreational flows."

Armstrong predicts flows will be strongest from mid-June through Labor Day Weekend.
