Don't miss the middle White Salmon. Beautiful run with a nice exclamation point at the end (scout Husum falls & set safety if it isn't already there from the commercial guys).
North Santiam run mentioned above has 3 class IIIs, they are all very straightforward and clean. Bonus is the Spencer's Hole is a great playspot at summer flows with park and play access.
Either way, check out pdxkayaker.org
for runs close to Portland and professorpaddle.com
for runs in Washington. Next Adventure (a local paddleshop) runs a free shuttle on the Upper Clackamas some days...they are generally announced on the PDXkayaker boards.
