Merced River

The Merced River is a popular recreational area in part because of Yosemite National Park. There are many activities within the watershed, including boating, fishing, camping and hiking. Whitewater rafting is permitted throughout Merced River Canyon from the downstream half of Yosemite Valley to the entrance of Lake McClure. MID maintains a number of access points for fishing along the Merced River as well.  Please note there is no trash service available. Please do not leave any trash behind and always check fishing regulations for the area in which you plan to fish:
