What a great trip. My husband and I rented a canoe while our son had the kayak. Very nice and relaxing trip. Even though we had to carry (portage) the boats in two different locations, it was well worth it. For a nice romantic time, take along a bottle of wine. Just don't flip the canoe like we did! Had a blast and would recommend it to anyone.

There are several accessible part of the Willamette that are good for rafts and fishing. Can be swift and dangerous, as with any river. Beautiful scenic attraction from some local restaurants, but the Pizza Parlour on Franklin and the Norh Bank near the Ferry Street Bridge are my favorites.

The waters are brownish because of the lumber / logging industries. Eugene is in the heart of the Willamette Vally which has this river running through the middle of it. There are a lot of parks and general riverside attractions. Don't swim in it.

We followed the river and took many pictures. It's gorgeous.

There isn't a bad view of the river. It is always changing. Watch for the osprey near Willamette Park.
