this run is chocked full of wood as of January 2011. Friends of mine reported 8 wood portages in the first three miles 1/21/11. They called it quits at the Cobleigh Bridge, so no info from there on downstream. None of the wood they encountered was in a dangerous spot and was easily spotted but not so easily portaged as brush grows to the bank in many spots on this run. FYI The falls make for a fun park & huck for those working on their boof; You can drive right to them and walking back for more laps is pretty easy
The gauge is below the bottom of the run. If the top is to boney, the bottom is just right. The most difficult drop is near the bottom, so . . .
Permits are not required for this reach.

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.
