Columbia River: Sauvie Island Professional Review and Guide

"Sauvie (not Sauvies) Island is one of the largest freshwater islands in the country. Much of it is covered by myriad lakes and sloughs, offering endless opportunities for flatwater paddling. Imagine an island so large it has its own rivers, lakes, islands, and sloughs.

Sauvie Island is noted for its bird populations. Great blue herons are common, watch for sandhill cranes in the winter, and in the spring a dozen or more bald eagles might be seen in a single day."
