I'll be in the Valley 5/10 til 5/15. I'll let you all know what the river situation is at that time.

We'll be there 5/5 to 5/12. We've got a riverfront site in North Pines. Gonna kick back and do nuthin'

Merced river flow is available in almost real time from Happy Isles at the following link, but nothing beats seeing it in person.

We decided to go earlier this year than usual, because of recent years lower snow melts. Just before Memorial Day had been our usual time. Looks like early May is going to be the max flow this year and that's really sad. I've been there in years past where the valley had overflow water everywhere, which was followed quickly by those wonderful creatures, mosquitos.
