This is a great section of the North Santiam. 9 miles of beautiful scenery and entertaining rapids. The forecast has an expected flow of 6,000 cfs. At that level it's a solid class 3 with big fun waves and pushy water in places. Boaters should have a solid roll/self-rescue skills. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

This trip has been canceled. A minimum of 3 people is required for a club trip.

Update: Based on the current forecast, I'm expecting around 3500cfs so we will be doing the Packsaddle run.

This trip will depend on flows which are forecast to change rapidly next week. If Packsaddle is below about 4,000 cfs we'll probably do Packsaddle to Fisherman's Bend otherwise it will be Mill City to Mehama. Paddlers should have dry-suits and class 3 experience either way. Feel free to email me if you have any questions!

This is the classic Packsaddle section of the North Santiam with a take-out at Fisherman's Bend instead of Mill City. Beautiful Class 3 section of water including The Swirlies, Spencer's Hole, Carnivore, and Mill City Falls. The flow is expected to vary significantly throughout the week but I'm expecting something like 2000-3500 which will be a great level. Paddlers should have significant class 3 experience and expect big waves and pushy water.

Helmets are required. Feel free to email me if you have any questions!

This is the classic Packsaddle section of the North Santiam with a take-out at Fisherman's Bend. Beautiful Class 3 section of water including The Swirlies, Spencer's Hole, Carnivore, and Mill City Falls. The flow is expected to be a bit lower than it's been lately. There is a chance of rain and/or snow in the forecast but I'm planning to go as long as we have a couple more people interested.
