One of the biggest reasons to visit the state of Oregon is to explore the great outdoors. Any local will tell you that there are plenty of beautiful spots to hike, fish, and experience the rivers of Oregon. A great site to start is Astoria, Oregon, at Astoria Riverwalk Inn. We have some suggestions for rivers of Oregon to explore when you arrive here.
Lewis and Clark River is a tributary of Youngs River. It stretches about 20 miles long. It eventually drains into the Northern Oregon Coast Range. If you are interested in hiking, there is the Lewis and Clark Nature Trail. It’s about a three-mile hike and easy for most people to take on.
Here is another gorgeous river with multiple fishing spots and hiking trails. The river is about 27 miles long. The Youngs River is a tributary of the Columbia River as well. One of the outstanding features of this river is the Youngs River Falls. It’s part of a pretty easy hike and one of the best spots for a photo opportunity.
The John Day River is another tributary of the Columbia River. This is a shorter river near Astoria, Oregon, only six miles long, but it’s still a great place to explore. The river happens to be an excellent place for steelhead and smallmouth bass fishing.
