This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification. 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. 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: We will put in at Beaver Boat Ramp in Clatskanie, OR and travel out on Beaver Slough until we intersect Wallace Island. Then we will paddle to the east end of Wallace Island and begin our counter clockwise navigation of the Island. Then we will return to the Beaver Boat ramp. Tides will not give us much help but the Columbia current will when we are on the outside of Wallace. This is about a 10 mile paddle. There are toilets' at the put-in and a parking fee of $5.00 . Parking fee takes credit cards.
