Cancelled due to higher than expected levels. The forecast has been steadily increasing and is up to 6500cfs which is high for a club trip on this section.

This is a great section of the North Santiam. It is a solid class 2 and boaters will need the skills to maneuver their boats in swift current. Soggy Sneakers #117 (5th edition). Helmets are required. Dry suits or wetsuits are strongly recommended, the North Santiam is cold! If you have any questions feel free to email me NMSUEagle@gmail.com.

This has been cancelled due to high water. The levels on the Upper McKenzie will be too high for a safe and enjoyable club trip.

This will be a beautiful stretch of the Upper McKenzie River from above Frisell to McKenzie Bridge Campground. The run will be roughly 11 miles and will include Fish Ladder rapid. It is fairly continuous whitewater and Paddlers should have experience with class 3 water. This paddle covers parts of run #89 and #90 in the latest edition of Soggy Sneakers. Helmets/dry suits required. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. NMSUEagle@gmail.com.

Final Update Fri at 11pm: Meetup instructions have been given out. Email me asap if you don't have them. Water level should be around 940 - should be fine.

--------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE FRI 5/20 at 2pm: Water level is 1161 right now. It should drop down to 900 to 950 by the trip. 850 is a great level. It won't be too low. TRIP IS ON!

WKCC water level page with low flow recommendations are often wrong.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE TUES 5/17: Water level went from 2400 to 1600 in just 3 days. We are looking for a level around 900 for a low flow easier float. We can go higher, but not crazy higher. With just a little rain coming on Wed & Thu, we could be at the right level on Sat. This river rises and falls very quickly.

-------------------------------
Lets try it again! Water is dropping fast and not much more is forecast this week. So it should drop down to reasonable levels.
Small, creek like river with tight turns, small drops and no big rapids.
We will put in about 5 miles above Blaine and take out about a mile below Blaine.
