Recreational use of the Kings River is closed due to extremely high flows of flood waters, the Kings County Emergency Services Director announced Thursday.
“The current high outflows from Pine Flat Dam and significant remaining snow pack above the dam create a dangerous situation for recreational activities along the river.
