Sluice Box

Recommended Posts

I think that you may be trying to take your sluice out the wrong time of year here in Arizona.  I don't know of any creek, stream or wash that would be running fast enough to even move the material down the sluice.  You would need a high banker to actually pump the water over the riffles to do any good.  Lake Havasu probably has the fastest flowing water of anywhere in the state.  Summer is here, the creeks are dry, and it is getting hotter;  as I am sure you are fully aware of being from over there close-to the hinges-of-hell.

Patrick--I drive to the San Gabriel in California to get my sluice wet.

GPAA used to have a claim that you could use a sluice in along the Agua Fria, but it dropped.  There was only a few weeks a year you can use that.

The other areas I know that have water year round in AZ are the Verde and Salt river, but know of no area to put a sluice in.
