White Salmon River

A weekend on the beautiful White Salmon River. Tentatively, the plan will be to run laps on the middle section Saturday and run the lower and "lower-lower" sections down to the Columbia on Sunday. Depending on interest and abilities we could also do the Orletta section. Camping outside Trout Lake Saturday night. If you haven‘t boated the White Salmon before or have limited class IV experience, please shoot me an email when you sign up. Husum falls is +IV, but is an easy portage. Steelhead falls on the lower-lower is also +IV, but can be portage with some effort.
