This short but enjoyable run is a nice change if you happen to be in the area. The first 0.5 mile contains many brushy class 2 rapids that culminate in an exciting series of class 3+ to 4 ledges. The ledges can be scouted ahead of time and avoided by using a lower put-in. After the ledges the river winds through farms and class 2 rapids for about a mile. The next rapid appears above the Old Creamery Road bridge, where the river drops over a few small ledges in a tight channel. After 0.6 mile, the river passes beneath a covered bridge and enters a mini-gorge. By this point, Trout Lake Creek has entered the White Salmon River and the flow has doubled. The gorge contains fast water and many small waves. The trip ends where River Road crosses the river. Just below the take-out, the river drops over a 2- to 3-foot weir. The 1-mile section from the take-out down to the next run is unexplored territory for this author. Character: wooded; agricultural.
