HUMPTULIPS RIVER BELOW HWY 101 NR HUMPTULIPS, WA
500 - 15000 cfs
Flow range for best boatability uncertain. Please help your fellow boaters with a comment or report. Gauge is below confluence of the East and West Fork. Actual flow on this reach will be lower.
SEASON: November to May with rainfall
ACCESS: At Hwy 101 mile 112.6 (approximately 4 miles north of the bridge across the Humptulips),
take Donkey Creek Road (FR 22) east off Highway 101. Put-in at FR 2203-030 where it ends near the
river or continue past Rainbow Creek up to 2203-040. Take-out where FR 22 crosses the Humptulips
on upstream river left.
This section of the West Fork of the Humptulips flows through mostly private lands as it meanders
to the take out on Donkey Creek Road. Along the way, intermittent bluffs rise high above the
water and during wetter periods can create a scenic backdrop as numerous small cascades tumble
down to the river. Although this is a mostly flatwater stretch without much in the way of
whitewater, paddlers will want to keep their eyes open for wood hazards as the unstable shoreline
has a tendency to calve trees into the water.
