BLM warns of colder, swifter and more dangerous rivers, including Merced River

The Bureau of Land Management's Mother Lode office said that because area rivers are experiencing unseasonably colder, swifter and more dangerous flows, it's asking river users to exercise caution when enjoying local river recreation. The conditions have contributed to three near drownings on the Merced Wild and Scenic River in recent weeks.
