River Description

Just about everyone who travels up I-84 stops to check out Multnomah Falls, a dramatic two-tiered falls that drops 620 feet down to the floor of the Columbia Gorge. Those who just make the quick stop may wonder what lies upstream. Jon Loehrke and John Whaley went to go find out. Their story is recorded at Oregon Kayaking. While this might not count as a standard run, they did document a navigable stretch of river.

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.
