River Description

A high quality creek in the Columbia Gorge that builds in intensity to fun class V boulder garden rapids. It can be tricky to catch as snow can limit access during the winter rainy season when it runs.


For additional information see the Trout Creek description on Rackley's Oregon Kayaking site.

The tree in the last drop before the confluence has shifted, so the drop is now runnable. At high
flows can go right over the ledge above it, and at lower flows you can probably run the left closer
to the tree and then cut right just above it.
