River Description

To my knowledge, this has been run exactly once, on 4/9,00, although I wouldn't be surprised if there had been other "first descents." It's narrow and slow and so full of trees, strainers, and logjams that I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back. There are three ledgy waterfall-like drops, though, so it's not a total loss. Kinda fun floating through people's backyards, too.

Gage Descriptions

Only runnable (if ever) when there's been a huge amount of rain. The best rain gage would probably be Bath, 8433, but it's not really in the headwaters.

The USGS maintains two flow gages. Neither is realtime, but both have recent data. We got Ghent (upstream) and Botzum (at the Cuyahoga confluence). Seems we had about 150 cfs on the day that we ran it in April, Y2K. It runs higher than that a few times a year.

Directions Description

We have no additional detail on this route. Use the map below to calculate how to arrive to the main town from your zipcode.

New Hydro Project for Cuyahoga (OH)

Thomas O'Keefe

The Cuyahoga River, the river that burned, played a pivotal role in the birth of the nation's river conservation movement. While restoration gains have been significant, a proposal for a new hydropower project on a dam targeted for removal would represent a signficant setback in ongoing restoration efforts and would delay for at least half a century any effort to bring back the lost whitewater that sits buried behind the Ohio Edison Gorge Dam. Paddler participation at upcoming scoping meetings is important.

Condit Dam (White Salmon River WA) Removal Agreement

John Gangemi

September 22, 1999 PacifiCorp signed an agreement to remove Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Southwest Washington State. The culmination of two years of negotiations between state and federal agencies, American Whitewater, and 13 other environmental groups. The agreement calls for removal of the 125-foot-tall concrete dam that since 1913 has diverted water from the natural channel obstructing downstream navigation and blocking upstream fish passage.
