Powder River: Milepost 20.5 to Cable Tram (Milepost 34) Professional Review and Guide
"The Powder River starts in the Elkhorn Range above the mining town of Sumpter, and flows east through Baker City and into the Snake River at the town of Richland. This run is 20 miles downstream of Baker City, beginning at the eastern end of the Lower Powder Valley and ending just before Eagle Valley. The run is described in two sections separated by the backup, Slide Lake, created by a major landslide in the early 1980s. Adequate flows occur March into June as the result of snowmelt. The average river width is less than 20 feet. Character: desert canyon."
