White River: Wamic–White River Bridge to Tygh Valley Professional Review and Guide
"This is a beautiful run through some of the most delightful canyons in Oregon. Do not do this run just for the whitewater. Do it for the scenery and the possibility of seeing hawks, eagles, lynx, ouzels, vultures, mergansers, grouse, deer, deer flies, and butterflies. The river passes springs, caves, beaches, and creeks but, most of all, has a wonderful sense of isolation.
The first half of this remote run has the easiest whitewater and the best scenery, where rock walls rise right out of the river. In the run’s second half, the steep canyon walls are farther from the river and the difficulty of the rapids increases. At low levels, the run is very technical, especially the last two rapids. At higher flows, the first 9 miles provide fast-moving class 2+ rapids with the last two rapids being more open with greater choices but significantly pushier with bigger waves. Character: forested canyon."
