Freestyle rolling on the Truckee River in downtown Reno

The Eighth Annual Reno River Festival  is just kicking off at the Truckee River Whitewater Park in downtown Reno, Nevada. Cold, white and fast is the water and high are the spirits of the kayakers performing in this year's competitions such as freestyle kayaking. You can watch maneuvering kayakers flip and roll at the river swells next to the open-air stage.

The water of the Truckee River in Reno has been flowing over 2,500 cubic feet per second (cfs) over the last days. Usually it is much less, but with still lots of snow in the Sierra and the recent sunny weather with higher temperatures, we can expect a continuation of high water levels and above normal cfs values.
