Small description of float:

This is a private access point in the Trigger Gap Mountain Pass area called Kings River Outfitters. It is Just off paved Hwy 221. You will need to pay a small fee to park your car and use the private access. Stop at their office to make arrangements. They also have a shuttle service with other lengths of float options along with canoe or kayak rental. This stretch is a favorite of the Kings River for rafting, kayaking and canoeing. But it is especially known as a trophy section of the river for smallmouth bass. Only one bass may be kept and it must be over 18” in length. This 12 mile trip combines good riparian scenery with good fishing and many large gravel bars. Two creek tributaries enter the river on this stretch. Keels Creek enters on the left at mile 8 and the Osage Creek which is the largest tributary to the Kings River enters on the right near the HWY 62 bridge. The take out point is the JD Fletcher Public Access point just off of the HWY 62 Bridge. Please note that the path up and down to the river can be a little steep and difficult.
