Lewis River—Northern Section Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Lewis River is a southwestern Washington river that enters the Columbia near the Oregon town of St. Helens. The trip described here, however, ends a few miles up the river at the Washington town of Woodland. Throughout this trip, watch carefully for rocks in shallow areas and for fallen trees and tree branches that might impede progress.

The latter can be particularly dangerous because a boat can be swept under them. The upper half of the trip travels through steep wooded territory. The current is strong, but little rough water is encountered. Between rivermiles 15 and 14, several small islands require careful choices to avoid shallow water."
