River Description

This is a short run that goes quickly when it is running. It has a mostly continuous nature and few well defined drops, making it less popular than the nearby Devil’s Lake Fork Wilson R. and Jordan Creek.

The put-in is marked by a OHV sign where the West North Fork Wilson joins the North Fork. There are several play spots along this run and a nice pool below the Wilson River Trail footbridge, about 1 mile before the confluence with the main Wilson. Jones Creek Rapid (III) is located at the take-out.

When the Wilson gauge is around 2000-2500 cfs it is kind of low and gets better when the Wilson is at least 3000 cfs.

Oregon Waterway Access Bill Set to Become Law

Priscilla Macy

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.
