Registration is closed

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.
Please review the Covid precautions on our website and be ready to follow them.

Narrative: Please join me for a casual paddle from uncrowded Rogers Landing on the Willamette, paddling southward beyond Ash Island, perhaps to the Yamhill. This is generally a quiet part of the river with pleasant scenery. We will stop somewhere around 4 miles and return via the other side of Ash Island. This will be an 8 to nine mile round trip during the last vestiges of summer like days. Rain is coming soon.
