Man drowns on the N. Umpqua Sunday.

It was a beautiful weekend for Rafting in Oregon. Reminds you how quickly can go bad. Stay safe.

Very sad. I haven't run the Nump in a few years. Wonder which rapid is at MP 32?

I think that would be fairly close to the Narrows, and that is a two part rapid. There is an upper lead in rapid and then a narrow, constricted ledge drop. He worked at Sawyer.

No, mile post 32 is near Fall Creek picnic area in the middle of Segment 4. There sure are some real bastards commenting on that news article link. Louise, who ever she is, needs to get a life. I can't believe they allow those type of comments to be posted. Condolences to the family and friends.

The boat flipped at Bathtub rapids and went through Island rapids as well. Sad day.

All of the crew at Cascade River Gear and Maravia send a whole heap of love and strength to the friends and family of Scotty as well as our river family at Sawyer. Another huge loss for the river community... ride the waves Scotty and Rest in Peace.

Scott will be missed by all of us at Sawyer....he was an amazing person and taken from us way to soon. Positive that he will be riding waves and grinning down on all of us.

Thank you for the love~

After more details emerged today....I am pretty sure this is the boat and other person that was with him when he drowned. I was searching youtube for any available videos of Bathtub rapid to see if i could remember running it and this older vid popped up. Again, extremely sad.

Just to be clear, that video you put a link to is of Segment 2, not Segment 4 where the incident occurred.

I understand. I have always run the upper sections of this river. I don't think I have run anything in sec 4. Which is why I was searching for vid of the rapid. When I saw the name of the poster and the description of the boat it seemed to match details that came out today in the paper.
