The Upper East Fork of the Hood is a continuous class IV river located on the Northern slopes of Mt. Hood. It takes a lot of rain or a fast snowmelt in the winter/spring months to bring the water level up. With no gauge to check the level, it's hard to catch when it's in, which is usually only once or twice a season. Earlier this year, it rained for 4 days straight, and we rallied south along highway 35 to see the river at a perfect flow. Enjoy the photos, however, apologize for the lack of on-water pictures - the continuous flow and lack of eddies make it difficult to snap some shots.

Cheers,

Kim Russell
