Johnson Creek


Johnson Creek ows west for 26 miles from the agricultural foot- hills of Mount Hood near Boring, Oregon, to enter the Willamette River just upstream of Portland. Numerous springs and 50 inches of annual rainfall over a 54 square-mile watershed provide stream flow to the creek and its tributaries. Salmon, trout, diverse wildlife, and 180,000 people live in the Johnson Creek watershed.
