A 5.5 mile paddle on the Calapooia as it enters the Willamette Valley, Not a lot of gradient in this section, the river flattens out and slows down. Generally this will be a Class 1 moving water paddle, there will be a few technical spots -so I posted it as a Class 2. At the present low flow it will be possible for a learner to sneak up on the technical areas and choose your options. We last paddled this section 3 seasons ago and encountered some large wood. Being the first paddle this season the wood situation is an unknown, we will deal with it. This section has the abated diversion from the Boston Mill, Shedd OR. A man made rapid is now where the weir was, they did a good job on it and it presents as a splashy play spot. A paddler will need a short durable plastic boat or an IK, and skills to maneuver and steer. This would be a good paddle for a learner transitioning from moving water to a little splash. Register for this paddle to receive an Email Friday evening with details about the Launch, Shuttle, and Takeout.

A fairly docile 3.5 mile paddle of a Willamette Valley floor creek with not a lot of gradient. There will be wood, but at the present low flow its quite manageable. Muddy Creek actually flows clear and clean, it is charged with water taken from the McKenzie River near Coburg by the Coburg Irrigation District. Come see the 1873 Army Corps Revetment from when the City of Corvallis was about to loose its active Willamette River channel. This paddle is suitable for learners with some boat control skill.

A moving water paddle of 4+ miles on the upper 1/2 of the classic paddle from Peoria to Corvallis. We do not want to get caught on the river in darkness so we will only go 1/2 way and takeout on a private property gravel bar with permission. There can be big wood in the river, a paddler will need boat control to stay clear of wood. This is an excellent paddle for learners and beginners. The launch is developed and easy, the takeout is a gentle slope gravel bar. Register for this paddle to receive an Email Tuesday evening with details about the Launch, Shuttle, and Takeout.

In this section the Santiam is still in the mountains and the stream is narrow and sassy. About mid trip the river emerges into the Willamette Valley, widens and presents as a Class 1 moving water paddle the rest of the way. This paddle has a diversion weir to portage, it is done via a wooden ramp. A paddler will need some dexterity and balance to perform the wet (out of boat) portage. This paddle is suitable for learners who have boat control and are able to obtain their desired line. Shorter maneuverable boats are desirable. The river will present as very cold snowmelt coming out the bottom of a reservoir. Both the Launch and takeout are developed and easy.
