Crossing bar at Columbia river

As your message indicates, you must be extremely careful. High water slack occurs much later than tables indicate during May and June due to the spring freshet runoff. You might consider looking at the bar via a salmon fishing charter, which can be great fun byn itself. Current during an ebb can exceed 8K.
