Reported on WKCC listserv April 24, 2017: There are two new hazards in the Calapooia River that
have appeared since the recent floods. They are below Holly, Run 98, 5th Ed. Soggy. The first
occurs where the river splits around an island with most of the flow going left. A tree, with many
branches, extends from the left bank to the island and is completely in the river. The tree is not
noticed until a boater is committed to the drop. It was marginally possible to land on the right
(the left side of the island) and then portage. It is also possible to take the small right channel
around the island if you recognize this place in time. The second hazard is in the Class 2 rapids
about 1/4 mile below the bridge in Crawfordsville. A large root ball is lodged on the rocks at the
top - middle of the rapids. On the right, a log and some hanging tree limbs make the entrance to
the normal right side route a bit dangerous. In general, there was above normal debris in the river
from the recent February and March floods. These hazards were not present in January. The debris
will probably not wash out until a flood occurs next fall or next winter.
