Nehalem River

Couple (Reserved)

Nehalem Bay, at the mouth of the scenic Nehalem River is a magical coastal paddle with abundant tidal marshes, harbor seals, clams, oysters, elk, deer, and sea birds. This bay is part of the Pacific Flyway, a major migratory route, enabling you to see many different types of birds such as Great Blue Heron and California Brown Pelican to waterfowl like buffleheads and widgeons. Peaceful and calm, it’s bordered by Nehalem Bay State Park and is a great place to explore and paddle in ocean breezes. This paddle upriver allows continued views of birds and wild animals, and a narrower channel through trees, with occasional side channels where wild roses bloom.

Narrows channel

Individual, Couple

The Narrows, on the Willamette River above Willamette Falls and West Linn, is still one of the best kept paddling secrets close to the Portland metro area.  A few minutes of paddling takes you from the rush of the city to Rock Island and Little Rock Island natural area, where the river has cut its way through basalt formations and left beautiful islands where Madrone, Oak, and Cottonwood trees cover the hillsides and Camas, Larkspur, and wildflowers carpet the grounds. Prepare to see osprey, eagles, blue heron, many species of water birds, and beaver on this paddle.

Estacada Lake is a jewel undiscovered by most who only glimpse it as they pass over the bridge into Estacada. This beautiful waterway is surrounded by steep hillsides and basalt cliffs, with waterfalls here and there on both sides, deep pools and shallow riffles.  Located between two dams, this is a prime area for fish and wildlife to flourish, and is as peaceful as they come for those who seek quiet.
Hagg

Individual, Couple

Henry Hagg lake is a beautiful lake nestled at the foot of the Coast Range, just 25 miles from Portland near Forest Grove. This pretty place is home to large elk herds, Blue Heron, eagles, turtles, and a variety of other wildlife. Scoggins Creek is a feeder source for this lake, and both are part of the Tualatin River watershed, supplying water to four local cities. This lake is a visual stunner as the seasons change, with low lying fog that hugs the nearby hills in the fall and winter, and cherry and dogwood trees that bloom in the spring and summer.

Tualatin

Individual, Couple

The Tualatin River has many places to put in and is wonderful for a serene paddle, especially in the late summer and fall months. Close to Portland and very convenient, this river winds gently through rural areas and small towns, with cottonwood, oak, and pine trees lining the shores and arching over the water.  Wonderful in the summer, this is a fantastic paddle in the fall when the leaves are changing and dropping on the water.  Blue heron, osprey, eagles, fish, nutria, and beaver are some of the wildlife you will see.

This little freshwater lake is a unique gem that is filled with beautiful lily pads in the spring and fall, and lies sandwiched between the ocean and Tillamook Bay. Because it lies protected behind the dunes of the beach, this is an ideal place for Blue Heron, Snowy Egret, Pelican, and many other birds, as well as beaver and elk herds. In the summer and fall months, full moon paddles here allow you to paddle under a huge coastal sky with the sound of the surf just beyond the dunes.
