In this 12-mile section, the Siletz River changes from a small mountain stream to a broad tidal river. The upper portion of the trip involves paddling on a shady stream with a strong current, whereas the lower portion is wide and slow, with the only current generated by the tide. This is a long trip for a single day of paddling, especially if the wind and tide are both moving in from the ocean. Plan the outing for a day when the tide is on its way out during much of your trip. Another option is to paddle only a portion of the section described here.
