The section below Tumalo State Park suffers from the same problem as the Riverhouse Run. Lot's of water upstream being diverted for irrigation makes for often dismal flows in the summer. Flow info can currently be obtained here (http://www.usbr.gov/pn-bin/graphrt.pl?debo_q).
This section isn't as intimidating as the upstream riverhouse run but does contain a mandatory portage at Awbrey Falls. See the rapids section for location and description of this. Awbrey is a class VI feature and something you don't want to end up floating down.
Other than Awbrey Falls, this is mainly a class III run in a small canyon. There is less population around this portion of river so the run has a more remote feel. As always watch for wood and any other hazards as you head down canyon.

See access info here.
|Put-In||Tumalo Road Bridge||
There's a small parking lot and dirt ramp on river left below the bridge.
|Put-In||Twin Bridges Access||
River right, upstream of the Twin Bridges. Make sure to stay in the main channel above here as the left side canal isn't meant for floating. This is a primitive access point with no facilities or ramp. Can be used for fishing access along the banks as well.
|Take-Out||Cline Falls State Park Access||
Cline Falls is on river right just off of Highway 128. There is a large concrete ramp, picnic and other facilities here. This is also a great fishing access spot.

A tight constriction in the river here creates some nasty water and hydraulics
Mandatory portage on river right.
