DESCHUTES TO COLUMBIA - DIY Adventure

family rafting deschutesA little over 45 river miles, this trip begins just below Sherar's Falls and continues to the mouth of the Deschutes at the Columbia. Take the rapids called Wreck, Washout, Colorado, Rattlesnake and Moody. This is a great trip to take if you are interested in less people and some excellent fishing! It can be rafted in two days but many people stretch it out longer to better enjoy the fishing and camping.

There are several BLM campgrounds along this section of the Deschutes. Group size maximum is 16. Porta-potties are required gear. See Passes & Potties.

River Trails Deschutes will provide you with the raft, frame, oars or paddles, 80 qt. cooler, life jackets, pump, patch kit, cargo nets or spiders, cargo floors if needed, dry bags and ammo can. We will deliver the raft and equipment for you and pick it up at the mouth.

This section has designated weekends when jet boats can be on the river, it is an 'every other weekend' set up. We recommend you plan your trip on a weekend when jet boats are not allowed, it makes for a quieter, safer and less hassled trip! See www.recreation.gov for jetboat rates.

Segments 3 & 4 are under the limited entry system. Check the BLM Boater Pass website for trip availability. See Camping for information on BLM campsites (segment 3 & 4).

BOATER PASS REQUIRED

Boater Pass MUST BE purchased ahead of your trip time at www.recreation.gov. Print out your pass and bring with you, or save on your smart phone. (There are no longer boater pass vendors.)
