North central Oregon's John Day River exists in a world apart. Undammed and free from hatchery influence, it and its summer-run steelhead are emblemmatic of wilder times in the western U.S. That both exist today in relatively pristine condition the John Day is said to have the healthiest wild steelhead population of all Columbia tributaries is miraculous. That a trip such as this well-run, four-day float-and-camp is available is truly fortunate. • • • Great fly water, aggressive fish, abundant wildlife and spectacular scenary make for a great wilderness experience.
