As a part of Portland General Electric’s (PGE) license for its hydroelectric project along the Clackamas River, PGE follows a Recreation Resource Management Plan that directs the Company towards recreation projects along the Clackamas.
PGE meets bi-annually with a local whitewater stakeholder group, the Boater Logistics User Body (BLUB), to plan, conduct and complete the whitewater boating-related activities along the Upper Clackamas River. Such activities include sponsorship of the Annual Upper Clackamas River Whitewater Festival, the development of three river boat access sites (complete), the creation of a new whitewater boating-related improvement (in discussion), and funding for the annual maintenance of USGS flow gauges (ongoing).
As a part of the above measures, PGE is seeking feedback from the whitewater community on the current flow resources along the Upper Clackamas River through a short 8 question online survey.

We encourage paddlers who enjoy the Clackamas River to take this survey:
