White Salmon River is Online

Located close to the town of Hood River, the White Salmon River is now online. 

The White Salmon River begins with an immediate 1-2 punch of Class III, and remains that way for the first mile or so of this stretch. As a glacier-fed river, the White Salmon is known for its crystal clear, cold water. It’s coup de grâce is a 10-foot drop known as Husum Falls. In the summertime, be prepared to have an audience if you choose to run Husum Falls.

The White Salmon River guidebook and map can be found here.
