River Description


This is a nice run for novice boaters looking to try out a couple intermediate rapids mixed in with loads of class IIs and easy IIIs, or a nice place for more advanced boaters looking for a relaxed day on the water.

The whitewater is mostly class I-II+ with a sprinkling of easy IIIs and 1 class III-IV rapid near the end.  It is possible to catch a glimpse of the tougher rapid from the road during the shuttle, which can be portaged along the right bank.  

Bring a snack and enjoy the wildlife, there are nice beaches for a lunch break and small rapids are abundant.  Small surf waves present themselves here and there, a couple with good eddy service.  Take out at the bridge in Tiller, which has nice descriptions of the wildlife in the area on the upstream crosswalk.

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.
