To river rafters it means rapids that are challenging enough for seasoned veterans, yet easy enough (on the lower section) for beginners.

For floaters, one of the most popular sections of the river is from Dale to Monument. Rapids on this section of the NFJD are generally categorized as Class 2+ Rapids. At higher water the river takes on a Class 3-character.

The length of the journey is 40 miles and it winds through forested canyons and past several feed-in creeks. The NFJD is fed primarily by snowpack in the Blue Mountains so its flow is very seasonal. Peak flow is usually in late April to early June and in some places can be as high as 20,000 CFS. Average flow is around 6,000 CFS. The best time to run the North Fork John Day is in April and May when the flow is near its peak.

This section of the NFJD River marks the transition between the foothills of the Blue Mountains and the high desert country typical of eastern Oregon. The terrain is mountainous with open forest of ponderosa pine and little evidence of civilization. Wildflowers are abundant in the spring and walks into the hills above camp are well worthwhile. There are several dispersed camp sites along the route; however, they are located on private land. Please be respectful of other people's property and adhere to the posted notice regarding use and restrictions.

The water is quite cold from the snowmelt, and the remoteness from civilization must be considered. The weather can turn cold unexpectedly with the possibility of frosty nights or snow flurries into June.","post_name":"north-fork-john-day-river","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.9979","lng":"-118.941","permalink":"\/see-do\/natural-wonders\/bodies-of-water\/rivers\/north-fork-john-day-river\/","terms":"a River<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"81":{"ID":"9058","post_title":"Gatens Tommy J","post_content":"","post_name":"gatens-tommy-j","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.1341","lng":"-118.87","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/gatens-tommy-j\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"83":{"ID":"340717","post_title":"Cold Springs National Wildlife Refuge","post_content":"
