Deschutes River - Canyon Run (Lower Bridge to Billy Chinook Res.)

Squaw Creek Rapid

Rapid Details

Name Squaw Creek Rapid
Class IV- to IV+

Up until this point the river has been running in a pool drop fashion from Steelhead falls.  Squaw creek rapid changes the game some.  The river makes a right hand turn where the creek enters on the left and the action starts.  The river narrows here and scouting is difficult.  If you are in kayaks, take the opportunity to ferry out behind a rock or in an eddy to do some boat scouting.  This rapid is very long and continous.  Several large holes exist towards the bottom portion of the rapid.


Scout from boat.
