12 1 078 0 Užava Stradži (A) - Sise (C)  

The section from Stradži (A) to Tērande (B) runs slowly through pastures and undergrowth. The scenery of the shore is monotonous, and this is a good time to get more comfortable in the canoe. The most beautiful stage of Užava starts in Tērande (B) and continues until Sise (C). The river is quite snaky, the trees growing on its shores often intertwine their branches above the stream. There are some swifts and large stones. Before Sise the river considerably narrows and its course gets only around 2m wide, its speed increases. After a typical bottleneck there are ruins of an old mill dam, and the riverbed is covered with heavy stones. This is the only place on Užava where inexperienced paddlers happen to turn their canoe over or draw in water at a higher water level. There is nothing dangerous here at a low level. Sise reinforced concrete bridge (C) is the end point for one-day canoeing.
