With hotter weather on the way -- more people will be taking to the water, but it's important to remember even though water levels are low, they can still be dangerous.
Just this afternoon -- a woman had to be rescued from the Truckee River.
Sparks firefighters responded to the river just east of Marietta Way around 2:30 pm.
There they found the 50-year-old woman in the river and unconscious.
She had experienced some kind of medical problem. Along with that -- they say she may also have developed hypothermia. "With the temperature of the river at this time hypothermia is always a concern so she will be treated for hypothermia for the exposure in the river, she was in there an unknown amount of time," says Sparks Fire Capt. Matt Toni.
Firefighters say the woman did regain consciousness as they were moving her, but her condition is unknown at this time.
Firefighters say it's always a good idea to have a friend with you if you go in the river -- just in case.
