This is a beautiful section of river just downstream of Big Cliff Dam with two rapids of note.
The Narrows is encountered within the first mile and can be scouted on river right. Niagara is a
narrow slot further downstream that can be scouted from Niagara County Park. Just prior to the
take-out the river pours over a deadly fish collection dam that must be portaged on the right.
A river description and
photos are available from Oregon Kayaking.
