North Fork Siletz River: Boulder Creek to South Fork Siletz River Professional Review and Guide
"This is a short but fun section of the Siletz, containing significant whitewater. All major drops can be easily portaged and can be seen from the road. A mile from the put-in is a smooth ledge that can develop a riverwide dangerous hydraulic. It is normally run on the right. Ten minutes later is Bombshell, a class 4 mini-gorge on a hard right bend next to the road. Scout during the shuttle. Several miles farther is a narrow chute that drops into an even narrower chute between two badly undercut walls. A portage is recommended. However, this spot makes a good take-out as the remaining mile to the confluence with the South Fork is class 1 and 2. Character: forested; clear-cut."
