A BOY wades in the South Fork of the American River as rafters wait for river guides to launch them. The South Fork appeared shallow when this photo was taken May 24 as the Sacramento Municipal Utility District held onto its hydroelectric reservoir supplies until hot weather hit in June. On May 22 the El Dorado Irrigation District reported flows in the South Fork at 356 cubic feet per second. Democrat photo by Shelly Thorene
