River Description

This run is near the Breitenbush and can be run when the Breitenbush has a healthy flow.  Locals report that the lower section is usually worth doing and the upper is dependent on the current wood situation.

The gauge correlates with about 1500-3000 cfs on the Breitenbush gage.  The lower section could be run with a little less water, with 1,000 cfs in the Breitenbush being too low.

 

Trip Report from oregonkayaking.net
