Gila Region (AZ/NM) winter paddling season is on!

The Gila Region winter paddling season has officially begun, with a bang! All of the region’s boatable creeks and rivers are up (San Francisco River WSA + 42 miles), Upper San Fran, Gila Wilderness, Gila Middle Box, AZ Gila Box, Mogollon Creek, Whitewater Creek, Blue River and Eagle Creek), with the next paddling window the first week of 2023.
We’re staged and ready to paddle here, at my home in Pleasanton, NM, on the banks of the San Franciso River. Seasonal temps for the winter paddling season average 55/32. Right now, my booking calendar is clear, and I can facilitate trips throughout the season (Dec-Apr).
Happy New Year!

Hey @zdog,

I’m unfamiliar with any packrafting trips in NM. Mind providing some pictures or elaborating on what makes it unique and perhaps why it’d be worth a trip?

I’ve only heard the best things about the state!
