North Fork of the Siuslaw River. 9-miles round trip (4.5 each way). No need to shuttle. The paddle is timed so that we can go up river with the incoming tide and come back during slack and with the outgoing tide with plenty of daylight to spare. (Rumors are that there may also be an opportunity to pick blackberries if they are ripe there.) Make sure to register if you are planning to come and be sure to bring a PFD, water, sunscreen, and to dress for the weather--and to complete the waiver if you have not done so. I will send specific meet-up location and instructions to those who have registered daily starting a few days before the trip.

Have you ever paddled the Willamette River near the Corvallis Hwy 34 bypass and noticed a little creek upstream of the bypass on the East Bank of the Willamette?
And that creek strangely flows clear & cold even late summer?
That channel would be the confluence of Linn County’s Muddy Creek.
Did you know the water sources from the McKenzie River near the Coburg Road Bridge (Close to where I-5 crosses the McKenzie)?
An irrigation lift station (The Muddy Creek Irrigation Company) draws water from the McKenzie, fills an irrigation canal which passes through culverts under Coburg, then flows north through a canal in the eastern Willamette Valley to augment Muddy Creek southeast of Harrisburg. Visit the WKCC Website and register for this paddle to receive launch, shuttle and takeout information. Paddle will be about 3 miles, we will be off the river well before dark.

SS #49 6.5 miles varying between class 1-2 The Umpqua flows through bedrock in many areas creating multiple little straight chutes which are nearly hypnotic in the pleasure of finding your line. A good chance someone will get wet but with warm temperatures and low humidity becoming chilled is not an issue. Helmets needed on this paddle as there are areas of class 2. Not beginner water, this paddle is a step up in moving water. A carpool from the Mid Willamette Valley is possible, Camping overnight Friday evening is possible as we register and input the wants of the group. Register on the WKCC website for details about the launch, shuttle and takeout.
