Thermalito Afterbay
Oroville Outdoor Adventurer

Thermalito Afterbay, a diversion pool downstream of Lake Oroville, is another option for boaters and paddlers. Smaller and shallower than Lake Oroville, the afterbay is located between Highways 70 and 99, easily accessible from Oroville, Chico and Paradise. No-wake speed limits before and after sunset allow for peaceful paddling, swimming and fishing.
