Registration is closed

This trip is limited to club members. To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group, if you intend to wear a spray skirt.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.
Narrative:
Join in our inaugural, getting back towards normal, OOPS trip on the Willamette River in Newberg. We will launch from Rogers Landing County Park in Newberg and head upstream to the confluence with the Yamhill River for our lunch break. At this time of year the current is very mild, perhaps picking up a bit as we approach the Yamhill River. This trip goes through rural and agricultural land with lots of take-out opportunities. Not unusual to see eagles and heron on this stretch of the river, bring your binoculars and camera. Current water temperature at Newberg is 66 degrees and likely to get to about 70 degrees before the trip. Hard to predict the weather at this point, but likely to be warm and sunny. On summer weekends, boat traffic can be busy so that is why we are making this a weekday trip. Bring lunch/snacks and plenty of water. Parking is free at Rogers Landing and bathrooms are available. Total distance is about 9 miles.
