Wave Update: April 23, 2017 @12:30 pm

1. Jason's: Low energy, beginner to intermediate wave with pile. Low angle, low retention.
2. Kricket's: High energy, dynamic wave hole with steep green faces and variable pile. Moderate retention.
3. Green Wave: Steep, green shortboard special!
4. Eddy's: Rowdy, high-energy, expert level rodeo hole.
-- Approximate flow at BWP: 1090 cfs.

Know before you go! Before you head down to the Bend Whitewater Park, check the updates here or on Facebook. These reports help you understand river flows and what activity/level each wave is set up for.

Please note that while the pneumatic bladders in the center channel of the Bend Whitewater Park allow us to manipulate the river to create waves and rapids, we do not control the flow of the river. This means a wave feature may be different than what is expected or intended without notice. We try our best to let you know when flows fluctuate and effect waves however, the Deschutes River is a natural body of water and can change.

Sebastian FoltzThat looks a little cleaner than its been. That double wave earlier in the week was cool but I'd rather see a more uniform foam pile like early season. This setting looks a little friendlier. Thanks for all your work Ryan. The park has been sweet this year.

Sebastian FoltzKrickets has been rad at all levels. Pretty wide range of foam pile sizes depending on the setting, big the last few days. Ryan, I'd love to see the Jason's go back to being a single wave/foampile. The double is fun but I imagine it's a little daunting for beginner boaters.

Brooks FosterThis wave-hole looks great, but I'm still waiting for proof in the form of a good playboater throwing down on video. Now who is going to step up and provide!?

Bend Whitewater Park is for the birds! Shown shooting skyward at dusk, the park has several features for our avian friends. On both sides of the river, the tallest poles are for osprey. In the center of the nature channel, the "Kingfisher Perch" habitat sculpture is by local artist Andrew Wachs and designed to host the Belted Kingfisher as it observes the river and dives off for fish. ...

Jayson BowermanWatched an Osprey haul two fish out of the river in the park within a couple of hour's time yesterday! Nice to see the fish ladder component seemingly working.

Jesse NicolaBend Whitewater Park can you please post video of Eddies? Your description is meaningless and also could be construed as "Not good".
