Geocache Description:

Near Portland, Oregon

Difficulty: 1
Terrain: 4

This stash is located alongside the John Day River in Oregon. It is a beautiful place to go, and an excellent way to spend a few days with family and friends. Besides the incredible canyon country, you will likely see deer, bighorn sheep, otters, osprey, hawks, chuckar, quail and many other birds. This is a great late spring or early summer trip, but can be run much of the year as well.

Be prepared however, this is not a "Drive to" stash. You will need to plan for a multi-day outing that involves both camping and a whitewater adventure. I've floated this river in a drift boat and raft, and have seen many do it in canoes as well (canoes should portage the bigger rapids). Typical trip length is 4 to 5 days. Currently all debris, including human waste, must be packed out, and fires must be kept in a firepan, check with the BLM for current regulations as they are subject to change.

When I floated the river to place the stash the water level at only 450 c.f.s but 1000 c.f.s is the recommended minimum flow. Check here for up to date water level information. Don't forget your fishing rod the smallmouth bass fishing is excellent.
