General Information

The following lists the various Oregon flow sites reported by Dreamflows, and some whitewater runs associated with those sites.  This list isn't by any means exhaustive, but should provide a useful cross-listing.  Sites reported by Dreamflows appear against the left-hand margin in bold, while associated runs appear indented underneath.  Where available, gauge location and other pertinent information appear beneath the site name.  The terms "above" and "below" mean "upstream from" and "downstream from", respectively, and distances are in river miles.

In general, the flow on any given run will differ to some extent from the reported flow for its gauge.  For example, the flow on the Chamberlain Falls run of the North Fork American is lower than the inflow at Clementine, since the run starts many miles upstream from Clementine (side creeks make up the difference).  For runs marked the difference is likely to be radical.  Please consult a good white-water guidebook for information on how to estimate the actual flow on any given run.

Click on the icon, when present, for run-specific put-in, take-out and/or rapid location information.  Click on the icon, when present, for a composite view showing gauges and runs in the same drainage or general area.  The terms "run" and "reach" are used interchangeably; both mean a specific section of some river or stream that is typically paddled during a single trip.  Of course you're not necessarily limited to these access points and may choose others, though be sure to consider the legal and logistical aspects first.  Also, be aware that access points may not be accurately measured or displayed, and in any case can change over time, so please don't take the published access points too literally.  In particular, many access points are shown as the middle of a bridge; this doesn't mean you should seal launch off, but rather scout around for the best river-side access.

HearsayOpinions expressed by humble river runners (not guidebook authors).

Almost all of the runs below have some basic information about the run: the length, the class, and a tag indicating which guidebook the information was taken from (see the above table for a list of tags).  The page numbers (where given) are for the specified edition of the guide. The class ratings listed here never include all the nuances in the guidebook.  Note very carefully that the information supplied here is intended only as an aid to selecting runs which might appeal to you.  Different authors rate runs differently, some runs have significant rapids and hazards not covered by the ratings given here, and ratings change with flow.  Also, only a fraction of the information in the guidebooks is presented here.  PLEASE CONSULT AN APPLICABLE GUIDEBOOK before selecting a run to paddle.

Many of the runs listed below have links to web pages that describe the run and associated logistics.  Many also provide interesting photos.  Note: these are third-party web sites, though, and as such Dreamflows cannot vouch for the accuracy or completeness of the information provided; nor are the opinions expressed necessarily shared by Dreamflows.  Note also that for many runs, the logistical information is taken from a hardcopy book, even though there are one or more links to online pages as well.  This offers the reader multiple sources of run information.
