A great park-and-play spot.
This rapid is located at an island so go left to check out Carnivore or just pass by on the right.
Usually runnable year round. Two major rapids: Spencers hole(III) and Mill City Falls(III). During most flow levels the falls are more technical to the right with the center and left side more mellow.
The gauge referred to here is upstream of this run at Niagara. Another gauge is located downstream of this run.
Permits are not required for this reach.

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.
