Planning a trip down the S. Santiam from Wiley Creek to Mc Dowell Creek. I have a couple of questions that hopefully someone knows the answers to. Anything to watch out for in this stretch: splits in the river, snags, "hairy spots", or anything you think a guy should know about first time through? As for the take-out at Mc Dowell Creek, I know that it is privately owned, how do I contact the property owner, and does he/she operate a shuttle service? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
