John Day River

Launch permits are unlimited in 2015. An on-line launch permit is required and available here to float all sections of the Mainstem and North Fork John Day River year-round. Attention: You must Confirm Your Permit or it will automatically cancel and you will lose any payment made. Please check your Permit Reservation email for your confirmation deadline.

Confirmation Requirement

The Trip Leader is required to confirm their reservation on-line between 30 and 10 days prior to the launch date. If not confirmed 10 days prior to the launch date, the reservation will automatically cancel and the launch space will be available for reservation by another boater. We will send the Trip Leader two confirmation reminders via email; one on the first day the reservation is eligible for confirmation, and another 7 days prior to the end of the confirmation period. The email notices will contain a link to the permit confirmation page. After the permit is confirmed, it may be printed or saved to be printed later.

Last minute reservations: If a permit is reserved less than 10 days prior to the launch date, the Trip Leader is required to confirm their reservation on-line between 10 and 1 days prior to the launch date. If not confirmed 1 day prior to the launch date, the reservation will automatically cancel and the launch space will be available for reservation by another boater. Permits reserved on the day of the trip may be confirmed and printed immediately.
