As a basis to study the discharge characteristics of the Metolius River the John Day River was used. The Deschutes Basin of which the Metolius drainage area is a part was compared to the John Day Basin. There are several factors which must be considered when comparing the two basins. Perhaps the most important point which was not stresses is the fact that although about three‐fourths of the flow of the Deschutes River rises in the western most part of the Deschutes Basin, which part was more or less exempted by Piper in his discussion of general runoff characteristics, it is less than half of the Deschutes Watershed.
