River Description

This is a unique "backyard run" running through a rural area and a town a short distance outside the Portland metropolitan area.  Most of the run is fast moving class II-III with wood hazards.  The run starts out running through a golf course, and ends at a highway.

There are areas of bedrock that produce fun rapids.  The largest is near the end of the NF (before the confluence with the main stem of Deep Creek) and is called Peashooter.  

A short way below Peashooter is the confluence with Deep Creek and a short distance after that is the take out bridge.

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.
