Zach Collier: After an abnormal September rainstorm my friend Doug Wiedwald and I paddled the lower section Collawash River. We left the Onewheel at Two Rivers Day Use Area and drove up the Collawash River Road to a bridge 5.5 miles upstream. Along the way we scouted the rapids Boulderdash and Chute to Kill.
The water was low so the rapids had a creeky feel. We enjoyed the scenery and the fun rapids. After portaging Chute to Kill we immediately noticed fish swimming below us.
The lower 3.5 miles was fun Class II/III with some great play waves. After we were done paddling it was fun to revisit the river canyon by riding the Onewheel back up.
