McCloud River

McCloud River

The McCloud River flows east of and parallel to the upper Sacramento River, in Siskiyou County and Shasta County in Northern California.  Whether you want to take a walk, ride the current or camp out, McCloud River has something for you!

The McCloud is generally divided into two sections; Upper and Lower. Upper McCloud is considered to be above McCloud Reservoir, and the Lower McCloud stretches from the reservoir to Shasta Lake.

The Upper McCloud is where you’ll find the breathtaking McCloud Falls, a trio of waterfalls that set the McCloud River Falls Trail apart from other trails in the Mount Shasta area.  The Upper McCloud is also a popular destination for kayakers and campers.  For an up-to-date report of McCloud Area recreation and campsites click hereFowlers, the most popular campsite on the Upper McCloud fills up fast, so make reservations!

The Upper McCloud above Upper Falls is rarely stocked, and locating the fish often proves to be a challenge to most avid anglers, while the section from Lower Falls to Upper Falls is stocked and is open to bait fishing. The Lower McCloud is generally a fly/artificial lure fishery and catch and release fishing is greatly encouraged.
