South Fork Yamhill River: Grand Ronde to Sheridan Professional Review and Guide
"This run keeps open canoers busy and entertains beginning kayakers with many good surfing waves. Put in at the upstream right side of the bridge on Oregon 18. Only 0.2 mile downstream is a 3-foot ledge, class 2, followed by 1 mile of riffles.
At about mile 2 is an old log bridge followed by a highway bridge. About 0.5 mile farther is a small ledge drop. After another 0.5 mile is a second highway bridge. For the next 2 miles, a secondary road runs along river left. Below the put-in 5 miles is a modern concrete bridge, and 1 mile farther is an old suspension footbridge. About 0.5 mile farther is a 1.5-foot ledge followed in 100 yards by a 2-foot ledge; 0.5 mile farther is another 2-foot ledge with a channel on the right. After another 0.5 mile the river passes under a very high concrete bridge, at Oregon 18, then an older concrete bridge, at Oregon 22, that provides reasonable access. Character: wooded; flat."
