River Description


One of the best steep creeks in Oregon if you can catch it with water with waterfalls and boulder gardens.

See the description and photos on Oregon Kayaking.

The Oregon Kayaking moderates says "the boulder gardens are so steep that pins are inevitable at low water", be careful if flows are under 6'.  Refer to the Oregon Kayaking description for specific flow information.

Chasm has been run a few times, but is still considered a dangerous and difficult rapid. 

Footage of Sardine Creek, including Chasm is in this video.

Oregon Waterway Access Bill Set to Become Law

6/10/2019
Priscilla Macy

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.
