River Description


 

 

Flows:  Go to this site map and select the Eagle Creek near New Bridge, OR gauge to find flows.

 

1,000-1500 cfs is medium, it is still worth doing a few hundred cfs higher or lower.

 

 

Stream:  A nice run on the south side of the Wallowa's accessed by quality gravel roads.

There is quite a lot of nice class III and some IV, especially when flows are up.  There is one class V rapid at a point where the creek bends left, then back to the right. The boulders here are larger than seen elsewhere on the creek.  It can be scouted and portaged along a trail on the left.

More class III and some IV continues downstream to Skull Creek.  There is an early take out option at Little Eagle Creek confluence, at a campground that reduces the run to 6 miles.

 

Be mindful of wood, some years the run is totally free of issues, other years it is not.

Oregon Waterway Access Bill Set to Become Law

6/10/2019
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.
