Scappoose Bay ...
Scappoose Bay is an area of lakes, ponds, sloughs, creeks and channels merging together into a bay, becoming a side channel to the Multnomah Channel. Scappoose Bay enters the Multnomah Channel approximately one mile upstream of that channel's merging with the Columbia River, where the Oregon community of St. Helens is located. Upstream of Scappoose Bay are the fertile fields of Scappoose Bottoms and the community of Scappoose.

Scappoose Bay Watershed ...
According to the Scappoose Bay Watershed Council (2004), the Scappoose Bay watershed drains approximately 85,000 acres. Major streams include the North and South Scappoose Creeks, Milton Creek and McNulty Creek, in addition to numerous smaller creeks and tributaries. The creeks drain directly into Scappoose Bay, a low gradient tidal estuary adjacent to Multnomah Channel and Sauvie Island National Wildlife Area. The combination of high gradient forested watershed and low gradient estuary provide excellent habitat for all life stages of several salmonid species. North Scappoose, South Scappoose, Milton, Raymond, Sierkes, and Fall creeks are designated Essential Salmon Habitat Areas by the State of Oregon.
