Washington whitewater, Lewis River - East Fork

Clark county, Lewisville Park to Daybreak Park section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II     3 miles
 
Great 2 HR float! Put in about a mile up the road from Curly Creek Road (Trail 9303) at the bridge. Difficult time getting down to the water, but there are a couple different options on either side of the water. Water flow is high and cold, so make sure you have PFDs. The biggest whitewater of the float comes during the first 10 minutes on the water. There's a nice sandy beach on the right side of the river about half way down, which makes
    a great place to stop. A couple really nice water falls on the left side 1st half of trip. IMPORTANT!!! When the river forks (about 2/3 down) make sure you take the right fork, because there is a LARGE tree across the entire
river on the left side. The last little stretch, right before the Eagle Cliff bridge, is fast and there's a lot of water. Just past the bridge there's a section to put out on the left. Hike up the gravel road (1/4 mile) and stop at the Eagle Cliff General Store for some cold beer (GREAT SELECTION). Says Jason Peterson

River is extremely high.  Large rocks that are normally left uncovered are now well under water creating large waves/swells/holes
 
that are not typical for this part of the river.  Helped 2 older males attempt to retrieve capsized canoe wrapped around bridge pole below 503.  Watch Out. Says Kevin Hermann

*WARNING* Lewisville Pk to DayBreak on July 2, 2009. Water very low and very rocky using tubes and raft. Had to get out often and dislodge from rocks or walk over river rock. Had to walk from 1/4 sign to Daybreak all the way out and was VERY UNHAPPY. Walk was actually about a mile to parking area over river rock and then very narrow trail. Trails not marked if you have to get out and walk because water was TOO low (only a few inches deep). Would have appreciated uptodate info at booth at Lewisville entrance. Was told rafting was fine to Daybreak. Trip took 5.5 hours and was told it would take 2.5. Says Kim
