Hood River: East and West Hood Confluence to Columbia River Professional Review and Guide

"The Hood River is one of the few main rivers that originate as runoff from Mount Hood. Snowmelt and rainfall feed the river, making it particularly popular during winter and spring. Still, for many boaters, these prime seasons are too cold, so the Hood sees few problems with congestion. Orchards line the various roads to the river. In spring, paddlers may see smudge or heating pots that keep the fruit trees from freezing.

The Hood River offers fast-paced, intermediate to advanced action from top to bottom. The river character changes from forest to rolling hills and a run past residential areas, but the rapids continue nonstop in pool-drop fashion. Banks are steep, with basalt rock and brush or grass in places."
