About This Boat

John Day River Fishing

4 Days/3 Nights Fishing Trip
$1350 per person double occupancy

6 Days/5 Nights Fishing Trip
$2000 per person double occupancy

We offer 3 to 6 day smallmouth bass John Day River fishing trips starting in May and running through mid-July. During the summer months most of the river flow is used for irrigation. As agricultural water demands decrease in the Fall, the river starts to climb to floatable levels and steelhead start entering the system. Starting in October steelhead can be caught with flies and conventional tackle. This time of year also presents the opportunity for a cast-n-blast trip for the elusive chukar partridge.

We provide all fishing and camping equipment, including food, tents, chairs, cots, sleeping pads, river running equipment and safety gear. * Gratuities not included.

What To Bring & Wear:

- Visor, Cap, or Sun Hat
- Sunglasses (w/strap)
- T-Shirt & shorts or swimsuit (we recommend wearing shorts over swimsuit bottoms)
