With triple digits temperatures in the next few days, people are trying to find ways to stay cool out there.
"It's hot, you're out in the water. You're splashing around like a child. All kinds of fun," says Don Ryan.
One of the best ways to stay cool in this heat is to grab a tube and head to Mayberry Park in Reno. On Sunday morning, it was packed with people ready to float the Truckee River.
"I mean you come out and you're in the water and you're there for four hours," says Lisa Berlemann. "Sometimes, it gets crazy, but it's never, like, too scary."
These folks have done this before, and they came well-prepared.
"You get a whole group of people together. You all meet here and then you launch together," says Berlemann.
When everyone was ready to go, the group was off. Parts of the journey are smooth sailing, but you also encounter some rough rocky patches along the way.
A lot of people like to float all the way down as they make their way down to Wingfield Park. It takes a few hours to reach from Mayberry Park, but it's arguably the best part of the adventure.
"I thought it was a blast," says Camie Christmann. "It was so much fun. Adrenaline rush for sure."
We found a group who just finished their first rafting trip down the Truckee River, but it won't be their last.
"I recommend people to do it," says Brandi Seymour. "As long as they're doing it safely."
Some tips for you first-timers who want to float the river: Don't bring anything expensive like prescription sunglasses because you could lose them. However, don't forget to wear shoes, and you might want to have a pump handy, in case your tube loses air.
