River Description

Pine Creek is a nice quick action packed run. It has a combination of fun quick rapids that are beefy and roadside. Even better it is along the way to the put in for the Hell's Canyon section of the Snake. This makes it a great run to do the evening before starting that trip if its running.

Nearby Camping:
Copperfield Campground (at/near take out)

Directions Description

Put in upstream of Scotty's Hell's Canyon Outdoor Supply at a pull off that looks good and doesn't have posted signs. Go up as far as the rapids look good.

There is potential to take out right at the confluence with the Snake at Copperfield Campground. Has free day use, but no obvious easy access. Better access is slightly downstream on the Snake at the boat access for the campground on Homestead Rd

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.
