Lewis and Clark River Professional Review and Guide

"The lower 10 miles of the river are described here. The trip ends on the open waters of Youngs Bay, where a sea kayak is much safer than a canoe. Because this entire trip is tidal and the river is quite small, it is best to launch at high tide. If you disregard this advice, the upper part of the river may not be navigable, particularly late in the year.

In addition, a low-tide launch means several hours of paddling against the tide. In fact, if a low-tide launch is planned, the paddler will be better off making the trip in the opposite direction of that described here (or the trip can be started at the bridge near rivermile 7)."
