Deschutes River - Dillon Falls to Mount Bachelor Village (Big Eddy)

Brad's Hole

Rapid Details

Name Brad's Hole
Class III to IV

At this point you should be more river left than river right.  There is a small brushy section in the middle of the river and most of the flow goes right to a big nasty hole with powerful currents and hydraulics.  You want to stay left and take a narrow channel hugging the left bank.  This bypasses the ugly hole on river right.  However, about halfway down this channel is Brad's Hole which you will have to punch.  So line up and get some speed.


Scouting is hard.  Try to get a view of it before dropping in at Airplane.
