On 6/5/17, paddled from the confluence with Shellrock Creek 2 miles down to Harriet Lake (above this run). Much of this run is visible from the road or with a short walk into the woods. Very continous Class II, with a couple of Class IIIs at about 600 cfs outflow from Timothy Lake with only one mandatory portage in the first mile, followed by numerous portages in the last mile to the lake including a giant, difficult logjam. I highly recommend getting out after the bridge at the Harriet Lake cutoff. The continous gradient in the first mile makes for few eddies and should be approached with extreme caution. Rob Cruser

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.
