River Description

The full section is a portage fest described here at Jason Rackley's excellent Oregon Kayaking site.

A short section of bedrock slides and ledges can be cherry picked, but even that section described here is still a novelty trip at best. 

Marion Creek below the confluence with Puzzle Creek looks like it could be worthwhile class III-IV that flows from snowmelt if it was wood free, but historically it has not been.  Dangerous wood has been placed by the Forest Service, rendering this section a liability to anyone attempting to paddle it.

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.
