Waterman At Work Paddling Hazards on the Columbia River Waterman At Work

The Columbia River is one of the largest rivers in the United States and can present a number of hazards to a kayaker or other watercraft.

Powerful currents, eddies, gill nets, cold water and strong winds can be extremely dangerous to a kayaker. Kayakers should be aware of river flow rate and weather conditions and always have a PFD and necessary safety equipment. Do not paddle into river conditions that appear dangerous. A kayaker can get into trouble very quickly on the Columbia, if conditions look beyond your capabilities, do not go out, or go to another section of the river that may be easier to navigate safely.
