River Description


The forest service decommissioned most of the roads after the 1996 floods. The part of Fish creek that is still easily accessible is a class III-IV flush that is good fun and often free of wood.

Paddlers can drive up the paved road until it ends and keep hiking up the decommissioned road until they choose to put in.  There are some worthwhile bonus rapids if you decide to hike a ways.

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.
