VIDEO — Kayaking the whitewater Sitkum River near Forks
Sensational Sitkum River -- The Sitkum River is located on the Olympic Peninsula, beautiful Class II-V(depending on the section). This river is a rain dependent river that fluctuates quite a bit through out the rainy season, although there are recommendations for good levels to run the river (go off the Calawah gauge & hope for the best) we had quite the fun time even though it was pretty low water levels. When we left the shop in the morning the Calawah gauge read 2100cfs and dropping quickly. Still better than nothing! :) Happy Paddling!

"The Brandeberry Creek to Hyas Creek stretch of Sitkum River is 9.6 miles long, and it is classified as a class II-V section by American Whitewater.

"The wonderful Clallam County scenery (the river winds through the Olympic Mountains) and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle."
