River Description


This extremely short stretch (1/4 mile of rapids) is rarely run. According to posts on the Northeast Paddlers' Massage Board, it's not going to be high on your list:
"(T)the general consensus is that its not really worth it."
"(F)orget wasting the gas to get there. Mother Nature laid a goose-egg for this gorge and boating."
The section has river-wide sharp ledges and poor water quality. But, hey: it has rapids. If I lived in the area, I'd give it a shot at least once.
Lat/longitude coordinates are a rough SWAG, from descriptions and online maps, to get you in the vicinity.

Whitewater Spill Opportunity on Klamath River, Oregon

5/5/2003
John Gangemi

PacifiCorp is planning a two-week maintenance shut-down on the J. C. Boyle powerhouse in late June. This shut-down will cause spills of 1000-1500 cfs into the 5 mile dewatered reach between the J.C. Boyle dam and powerhouse. This section is upstream of the Hell’s Corner run.
