The upper section is high quality class V creeking.  Lots of boulder rapids.

The lower section is class IV(V) and a good intermediate creeking run. 

The runs are commonly run in conjuction.

Flow estimate here:  Between 400 and 600 cfs is ideal for a first time run, though it can be run higher, or as low as 200 cfs.

See the description in Jason Rackley's excellent Oregon Kayaking website.

The rapid known as Day of Judgement was altered circa 2007 and is now commonly portaged.

Oregon Waterway Access Bill Set to Become Law

6/10/2019
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.
