River Description


 

A roadside run in the Little North Santiam drainage.  Most of the run is fun, with a few serious rapids thrown in that most will portage.  Scout your eddies above the 3 gnarly ones on your way up, as they are small with fast water leading into them.  The rest of the creek is full of small horizon lines, with the occasional log to watch out for.


A visual check is required to see if the creek is at a good flow, but the LNF gauge on this page can let you know if it's worth taking a look.

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.
