Run Overview

This class II+ to III+ journey is accessible from 3 different boat launch points along the Owyhee River. Paddlers should prepare for some fun paddling along this run.

The lower Ohyhee is another great multi-day wilderness run.  The season is short on this section like the other Owyhee sections since this is a snow and spring fed river. Weather on the river today will be sunny, with a high near 80. breezy, with a light west southwest wind becoming west northwest 16 to 21 mph in the morning.
