I've had some vague ideas about a multi-day paddle across the delta to Crockett (a bit upstream from San Francisco Bay), and I've plotted a bunch of potential campsites on a Google map at:
What I'd like to know is how far from the eastbay can I get and still be able to make it home? I guess it's possible to get from Redding, fer instance--if the water in the Sacramento River is high enough--but can I get there from Modesto (and from farther south), or from east of Sacto?
I'm sure this has all been done before, but I can't seem to google up any real information.
(I have a short write-up of this project at my blog at href="http://tedhamiter.blogspot.com/2012/04/kayak-camping-on-delta-and-boat-in.html.)

Sacramento, San Joachim, Tuolumne, American, Napa, and Petaluma are the major rivers I can think of.

There is also the Consumnes River which crosses I-5 north of Stockton. It's the last uncontrolled river in the state. Depending on how much WW you want to deal with paddling a good chunk of that then into the delta and eventually the bay would be a nice trip.
Redding for sure.|

Several paddle in campsites along the river. The only stretch of class II is China Rapids north of Red Bluff. The rest is an easy float.
Thanks all (NM)|
