Not too many people think boating when they think of Arizona unless it’s at the popular destinations of Lake Powell and Lake Havasu during spring break.

Pat Reider rafts down the Verde River at Beasley Flats Saturday, March 9. Soon the river will be filled with all kinds of watercraft for the Verde River Runoff on Saturday, March 23.Yet, the Verde Valley is home to one of Arizona’s two “wild and scenic” rivers, as named by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s U.S. Forest Service.

Open year-round, the Verde River is a somewhat undiscovered stretch of water that can be used for numerous recreational purposes, particularly recreational boating. Some stretches provide scenic canoeing among long pools and manageable riffles, perfect for a slow drift or tubing. Other sections become fun whitewater runs during the spring snow melt or summer thunderstorms.
