So sad to learn this, he was a lovely man, albeit he could be somewhat abrasive, a real inspiration to us older generation, he will be sadly missed. I really hope that Discovery will continue to follow Dustin’s and his Fathers dream in the future, it is still a great show.
1 1 Tweeky  June 10, 2023
To all of you asking and stating about "missing" episodes on discovery plus... They air a few minutes after the "live" episodes Friday night at 10pm on discovery just like all the other Gold Rush shows. I have been watching it like this for the last 10 years on Discovery+
1 1 Tweeky Tweeky  June 10, 2023
Additional note I have plus but White Water is NOT the only thing I watch there as I do not have live tv but through an antenna.
1 2 Burth  March 10, 2023
Een van de weinige goede series , ook de reden waarom ik lid ben van Discovery+ . Slechte zaak een onderbreking midden in het seizoen, toont weinig respect voor klanten .
1 1 Beanie  January 28, 2023
Easily watchable free if you don't care about not paying 👀 Google unblockit , proxy server,go to best series on the list, every episode of every program you could imagine there the day it's released free.

Up to you if you want to be mugged off by discovery and pay for it
1 8 Sharon Hoer  January 21, 2023
To much greed in the world now,and Discovery Channel or whoever is in charge of gold rush white water should be ashamed. Stopping the show for no other reason and in the middle of the season.It was one of my favorite shows to watch. And there arren't that many. You all suck. And God doesn't like greed. Put it back on.
0 6 Mo  January 15, 2023
Discovery has done the same with Bering see Gold. Not even available on Discovery +. Like so many others. White Water is the only reason I have Discovery +.
0 0 Harold Clarke Mo  April 13, 2023
[bigsmile] I love that show but I think alot is Staged,Reason I say this is a Former Diver on the Coast of Maine and I've dove in rough water in 0 Conditions sometimes hard currents blowing 25 to 30 MPH.I WAS DIVING ON SEA URCHINS AND Scollops ,I guess it's for ratings but I still love the show and crew.
0 12 Eugene  January 6, 2023
When will season 7 start. Really did’nt like the way season 6 ended. I was wanting them to blow the rock up and hoping they
Would find big gold for the season finale. Discovery needs to let
White water super fans, give us a head up on when the 2023 Season 7 will start. Airing could it be in late summer or early fall?
Or will discovery even run season 7. Dustin said he pour all his money into this season. Does this mean no more Gold Rush
White water? If us a heads up! Hate to see Fred, Dustin and the gang disappear. Great Show don’t let die?
0 4 Dan Eugene  January 14, 2023
[sad] Season 6 will continue is April 2023.
Discovery shelved it so it didn't have to pay taxes on it in this fiscal year.
April 2023 start new fiscal year and rest of season is supposed to be aired.
Bunch of bs if you ask me. The discovery mangers was not thrilled about discovery doing this. You can web search his blog on White Water season 6 going on Hiatus.
0 5 SueDub Dan  January 15, 2023
Thanks for the info
0 4 George C. George  December 24, 2022
I like the show and have watched every episode. The entire cast are great miners and risk their asses on every episode, so why does Discovery have to contaminate the true story with their stupid scripting. As I said, I like the show and will continue to watch it, but it is a real shame that Discovery has to insult the intelligence of the viewers by blowing smoke up our ass with their made up crises? There are times when I tell my wife to "gag me with a spoon".
0 4 Gary  October 7, 2022
Better get their show up and going is one of the only shows that I watch and that’s the only reason I have that subscription it used to be gold fever on the Sportsmans channel and I got rid of that when they didn’t show that anymore they either need to get it going or I’m done
0 1 Shax A  October 4, 2022
I use moviebox Pro. It gets uploaded 1 day after its aired. No matter what channel its on. I pay $25 for the whole year.
3 1 Nuggets  March 1, 2022
Why all off you waiting and paying ? Y can see on YouTube for free quality sometimes suck but better them paying! [bigsmile] [wink]
1 6 Ronnie Gray  February 20, 2022
Greedy TV station/These guys are extremely technical diving. I am a diver & understand good viewing when I see it. Scripted or not. This river diving can be extremely dangerous. I find this very worth while Television, I don’t like Dustin bad mouthing his father but he has surprised me w/his obvious learned squired diving skills. Good entertainment ! Hope it’ll last !
0 1 Eddie moore  January 13, 2022
I agree with the other comments I'm constantly checking for on-demand because it doesn't even show up on directv.
Something else I don't understand, last years gold count...everybody was happy with it? For the months they spent in the wilderness a regular paying job would have made them practically break even living at home.
0 0 Dan I Eddie moore  January 21, 2022
I have Direct TV and found episodes 8 & 9. It says 8 is on ch. 1278 and airs tomorrow but I just used my dvr and recorded it and just started watching. Of course 10 seconds in I'm being sent out for dinner
1 3 CBJ  January 12, 2022
Fed up when they do this let us hang like this! Im not paying for Discovery+ to wait for the episodes for months! Put them all out at once! No ads!
Ore i will stop paying for it and wait for them. Thats just facts! When 8 comes i will pirate downloade it many days before i can see it here in Norway! Not ok! And dont lie since why can i get it for free before then. No ads! I pay for Discovery + but im starting to woonder why! I use over 600usd on streaming sites alone! But i cud get them all for free! And i dont wait if i dont have to.

0 3 Sherie Stephanie Warner  January 9, 2022
I agree!!! Discovery channel get it together. Do it or don’t. Quit with the half assed behavior. Is this your first day here. Unreliable unprofessional.
