River Description

 The put-in and take-out info from Bennett is accurate.  The first time we tried it, I believe the Clack was above 4000 and the creek at the put-in was ripping into a brushy tunnel with no way to scout downstream without trespassing on occupied land.  We bailed as we could not see an eddy downstream and did not want to get swept into a strainer or ???  We came back when it was in the high 2000s and there was just enough at the put-in.  Bennet's description of some small, weir-like drops early in the trip was accurate.  Further down, there were some interesting Class II and III, including a triple-ledge that was barely runnable because of wood hanging in the drops, but many of these rapids were wood-choked.  We had many wood portages and it made what might have been a somewhat interesting and pretty run a nightmare.  As we neared the take-out, side-streams had added to the flow and the last 1/2 mile was pretty fun.

Oregon Waterway Access Bill Set to Become Law

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.
