River Description


 

An easy float not far from Cottage Grove with convenient access.  There are a number of fun bedrock rapids, and a couple trees to watch out for.

The riparian area is thick in tree diversity, and these trees lean out over the stream creating an intimate scene.

 

For a shorter run, use one of the roadside pull-outs just upstream of Martin Creek.

At the bottom is "flood and risk management".  This will take you to a map of Willamette Valley gauges.  The gauge for this creek is the Coast Fork Willamette near London Springs, the furthest south gauge on the map.

3/23/18 was a nice, friendly medium flow.  The stream could handle a lot more water.
