We have received a report from one of our volunteers that there is a log jam blocking the river at river mile 37. It is about a mile downstream of Rood Bridge Park, and about four miles upstream of Farmington Paddle Launch. The log is perpendicular to the river, running from one side of the bank to the other. Our volunteer attempted to go over the log since there was some water flowing over the log but reported the boat was scraping along the bottom and ended up getting stuck on the log.

We have surveyed the stretch of the Tualatin from Rood Bridge to Eagle Landing for any navigational hazards. We found NO log jams or hazards that would cause anyone to have to portage, however, the water is low. There are a lot of trees, branches, and rocks that are now exposed causing some skill and patience to navigate around them. If you plan to go out on the river anytime soon please be cautious and alert when on the water. Inflatable water crafts have a high chance of getting damaged on that stretch of river.
Have fun and be safe out there!
