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.

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.
