Boating Bounty

A wise man once said land was created to provide a place for boats to visit. This adage certainly applies to Nevada County where lakes, streams and reservoirs offer plenty of boating options. Boaters love exploring Rollins Lake near Colfax or Bullard’s Bar Reservoir and Scotts Flat Lake in Nevada City. In Penn Valley boaters can launch a day of fun at Englebright and Martis Creek lakes. High country boaters gravitate to Donner Lake, Bowman Lake and Stampede/Boca reservoir areas. For a different slant on the boating theme, try a day of white water rafting with one of the outfitters that operate on the nearby American, Yuba and Truckee rivers.
