It's time to start planning for this. The pass system has changed a bit so not sure if it will be harder to get passes. I have heard it might. Last year think we went the first weekend of June so what does everyone think? I was thinking June 1st threw the 4th

Bless you, Benny for bringing it up!!!!

I'm very good with those dates as long as my quick Alaska trip doesn't interfere. I'm on "standby" on a traded trip deal.

Currently, over one hundred passes available.

Are you thinking about Green light hole camp? I might be able to con the crew into joining you there, if that is ok.

Yes I would like to camp at green light but open to what works for most of the group. There is plenty of room for everyone there too!

I plan to make it this year. Probably only two days though. How far upriver is green light.

It's about 10 miles. There was some talk about staying across river in Washington at a campground. So that might be an option if it works better ?

I would prefer to stay upriver. Not a huge fan of campgrounds. So 10 miles is above washout correct?

I'm a newbie from The Dalles, would love to join you guys, but I'll be drifting the John Day that weekend. I've been drifting the D for over 40 years, but have only been running up it for 3 years. I just upgraded my boat from a 95 Wooldridge Alaskan with an 80 jet, to a 2016 Alaskan with a 105 jet. Amazing difference between the 2 boats.

I'll start working the calendar! That's my dad's birthday weekend, and my son is Tuesday. Might make it kind of hard. We would only be there Friday and Saturday nights.

I'm going to see if I can make it this year, that river is what got me into jetboats, but have never ran it.

If anyone wants to run it the following weekend, I'd like to be involved. The 9th, 10th, and the 11th of June.

I am interested in this trip, but have had the fear of bedrock in the lower river pounded in my head. Is that true that on the lower section there are rocks that don't read? If we meet 10 miles up, is that a stretch of river that a first timer on the river should not do? If my schedule allowed I could also try to meet an experienced boater at the launch and follow them up.

Thanks for your advice on this.

This doesn't mean you can't make it up and down without incident. My dad did it the year before both days with no problem. I just happened to hit before we even got into the river proper... Made it thru rattlesnake before it started sinking... Thanks to destroyer, Ahusk, RiverJohn, stumpy, Kroy, et. al. We made it back down and on the trailer, with my tail between my legs and dad driving :RTFM: :oops:

We're ready! I just bought boaterpasses; wish they were this easy to get during steelhead season!
We'll be there as long as I'm not in AK. The deal is for late May-early June, so don't know for sure.

Chris, if you're unsettled, especially after Matt's pics, the river reads very honestly from Macks Cyn. down to greenlight; less so coming up from the mouth. Or, Sideways (Rick) and Waylon (Forrest) are both staying at Macks. They're both in tune with the river.

Thanks to Benny for getting the ball rolling!

Hey Stumpy, good to hear from you! I was wondering if that was the case! I did ride along a few years ago during a weed run, but didn't go down river very far and not in my boat. I know both Rick and Forrest know that river very well, so that may make sense to do that! If it works to ride with someone in the lower section, I can start learning that too! I think I'll be able to go, but there is talk of a Halibut trip around that time so I need to confirm if that happens or not!

I'm anxious to meet more of the people on this site! Thanks Benny for setting this up!
