I recently purchased a second hand OT Discovery 169 and have been brainstorming where to paddle. Actually the brainstorming started first, now I have one the important tools. A coworker and I have been planning a multi-night canoe camping trip and like the looks of the Upper Sacramento river but haven't been able to find much information about camping along the river. We much prefer not to camp in developed campgrounds. Does anyone have experience wild camping along this river that can offer insight as to good camping areas? We're planning on tripping in October, though August (hot?!?) and early November are possible options. I've read references to camping on sandbars but wonder about the safety of doing so when there is any chance of rain.
