Most continue on downstream on the Siuslaw River. You can take-out at mile 5.7 on Highway 36 at the Tide Wayside County Park, or continue down to mile 4.5 or 4.3 to free informal access sites.
Check Soggy Sneakers or the Lake Creek description on WetDawg.
The gauge reading is for the Siuslaw. 12
feet is optimal for playboating and once you
get up to 20 feet it's bigwater. The last few
miles of the run are on this Siuslaw River. Flow
on Lake Creek is approximately 1/3 of that on
the Siuslaw. This will correspond to
approximately 1600-5000 cfs on Lake Creek
and 10,000-31,000 cfs on the Siuslaw. (flows
based on Soggy Sneakers).
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
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.
