The Shish River rafting

The Shish river is the right tributary of the Irtysh river and is remarkable for its circuitous course. In the upper stream the river average width is 25 m, in the lower stream it is 90 m, the depth varies from 0.5 to 3 m, in some swirls – 12 m. The average current velocity is from 0.2 to 0.4 m/sec in river reaches and from 0.7 m/sec in cripples. The banks of the river are predominantly steep. The river is perfectly suitable for kayaking. The best time for rafting - July and August. It should be noted that dams can occur on the Shish. The banks of the river are mainly high, clayey and splashy and there are no sandy beaches. Rafting takes place in standalone environment as the number of settlements is extremely small, and there are no communication or roads. But in the forest along the riverside blueberries, cowberries and cranberries can be found , and the river is inhabited by pikes, perches and breams.
