Jackson Creek, South Umpqua – February 3, 2017
Jackson Creek is a tributary to the South Umpqua and offers a fun and logistically-friendly day adventure. There is no gauge on Jackson Creek, so use the Tiller gauge. On this trip, the water was on its way up and this was certainly a minimum flow for a raft.
There are numerous places you could use as access points. We boated roughly 10 miles in approximately 3 hours. There were logs across the river in numerous places, however at this flow we only had to portage over a log once, and were able to duck under the rest of them.
