Deschutes River - Cline Falls State Park to Lower Bridge



Starting at Cline Falls State Park you will need to do a mandatory portage around Cline Falls and the Power plant just below the Highway Bridge.  Other than that this is a class III float.  The Decshutes is more rural here with some small canyons it goes in and out of.
