The North Fork is one of the major tributaries of the Nehalem estuary. During the 1920's, the North Fork had a splash dam that was used by loggers to corral, then deliver the lumber in a gush of water and logs down into the main Nehalem, to a waiting saw mill downstream in Wheeler. Today, it is popular with fishermen during the seasonal steelhead and salmon runs, but also has a lot to offer kayakers looking to enjoy the above-water views. Restoration of shore plant life was completed in the 1970's and much of the land is now under agricultural use.
