    Watch the flows (I think there's alink on this site). Anything under about 1700 or so at Umptanum is wadable. It is unlikely that flows will be low enough to find anyplace where you can cross the river, or even begin to fish the far bank, so If you want the "whole river," rent the raft. But if the river is wadable, you should find plenty of water. Call Worley Bugger or evening hatch for up-to-the-minute reports.
