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.

This week, Oregon House Bill 2835 re-passed the Oregon House on a 52-7 vote. Having earlier cleared the Senate, the bill now awaits a signature from the Governor to be signed into law. For decades, opportunities to protect and improve the ability of the public to access and legally use waterways for recreation have seen minimal progress, while efforts to severely limit access have been a consistent threat. Oregon House Bill 2835 is a pivotal piece of legislation in Oregon, and the first proactive waterway access bill in recent history to have made it through the state legislature.
