Trip Report: Lower Clackamas


The flow was about 2,800 and Larry and I floated 9 miles from a state park down to a county park called Barton. There were many class II rapids, but not many eddies, and only a few surfable waves. The day was cloudy and warm. Hardly anybody was out there in boats, but there were quite a few fishermen along the shores. We saw a fawn swimming across a channel, lots of blue herons, a few ospreys, lots of Canada geese. It was nice to be on the water again.

The next 6 mile section downstream is called Barton to Carver and is even easier than the section we did.
