Cedar River Water Flow Rates on the Cedar River – Charles City

Cedar River Water Stage on the Cedar River – Charles City

 

Features

The first feature, Dam Drop, at the levels mentioned below, allows for endless front/back surfing and spins. At lower flows one can easily stand up surf it.

The second feature, Doc’s Drop, is a semi-retentive, powerful rodeo style hole. Advanced boaters should be able to perform most freestyle moves here especially at 1400 – 1900 cfs.

The third drop, Exit Exam, is not as powerfull as Doc’s but many freestyle moves are possible.

Levels (cfs – cubic foot per second)

200 – 400 cfs– barely runnable-med runnable, flat spins only

400 – 800 cfs – barely runnable-perfect runnable, vertical moves possible at the upper end of this range

800 -2500 cfs – med runnable-a bit pushy runnable, moderate flows. Excellent play. Vertical moves in Doc’s Drop and Exit Exam

2500 -4000 cfs – a bit pushy runnable-high runnable, high (but playable) flows. Starting to get large logs flushing through

4000 -7000 cfs – somewhat High-somewhat high – High, fast, no eddies! (Mostly ‘catch-on-the-fly’ surfs)

7000 -20000 cfs – somewhat High-somewhat high, Bank full to flooding. Play features washed out. Very fast current. No easy exit from the water

Notes

• 1400 cfs is optimal for playboating and Stand Up surfing in all features.

• For downriver whitewater kayaking and canoeing:

• At 400 – 3000 cfs all features are safe to run barring any debris hung up in them. A bomb-proof roll is highly recommended at higher flows.
