On the morning of July 11th, we were on board a Jerry's Charter boat taking the
beautiful trip up to Agness Oregon from Gold Beach. When we got to about the
half way point at Boiler Riffle we saw a large upright creature or animal going
from the river bar into the forest.
At first we thought it was a very big black
bear but very soon seen it wasn't a bear. It looked like the Patterson film
creature but was somewhat larger we think. We tried to get a snapshot but the
thing was much to quick and we were to slow. The operator told us he had seen
several of them along the river over a period of 15 years. He said it was a
It was covered in a blackish brown hair. The arms swung low on its
sides. We could see the upper part of the creature was very wide and well built.
Evidently they, the Bigfoot's, come down to the river after dark to drink. One
couple from San Francisco said they had never believed anything they ever heard
about bigfoot until now. Another couple claimed to have seen a different Bigfoot
2 years earlier on this same river only up closer to Agness.
When we got up to
the Cougar Lane Lodge we told several people what we had seen and none of them
were one bit surprised and said it happens from time to time. We are from North
Carolina and really loved your beautiful state and want to come back soon. Seems
that God has blessed the state of Oregon. You are lucky to have such a wonderful
place to live.
