GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. We scouted this run at low water and would NOT recommend it to anyone. The whitewater section is very short and at the top end of the run. Fish habitat restoration efforts have placed man-made strainers at regular intervals throughout the run which is mostly class I-II with meanders. The man-made strainers consist of 2-4 logs with rootballs midstream, anchored together to a rock with cable, usually one on each side of the river creating an S-turn. There is a riverwide wire fence above the short whitewater section. There is a fish dam in the lower section. And that 54ft/mile gradient seems like a hallucination: looks flatter than that to me.

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.

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department wants to hear from you about whether three Oregon rivers should be protected as State Scenic Waterways. Sections of the Molalla, Chetco and Grand Ronde, all of which are well known and loved by Pacific Northwest paddlers, are up for consideration. The agency is seeking public feedback. Comments can be emailed or you can respond to a short survey by October 15th.
