A Rogue River rafting trip is one of the West Coast's premier whitewater river journeys. When Congress first passed legislation to preserve America's wild rivers, Oregon's Rogue River was among the first to receive protection as a Wild & Scenic river. It's a wild country and wildlife is everywhere; more wildlife than you're likely to see from the water anywhere in the lower 48 states. Hellgate Canyon alone is home to black bears, raccoons, river otters, deer, mink, salmon, trout, osprey, blue heron and bald eagles. Fishing is abundant in Southern Oregon. Whether you are an experienced fly fisherman or an amateur, the legendary Rogue River is for you. Check out the many fishing outfitters, rafting outfitters and guide services offered in Southern Oregon.
DISCLAIMER If you plan on boating any sections of the Rogue River without a guide, you should have sufficient knowledge and skills to read water and navigate rapids up to a class III rapid. The rapids of note in this section are Dunn Riffle, Upper Galice, Lower Galice, Chair, Widowmaker, Alameda and Argo. Before your first trip down the river, we strongly recommend that you download a copy of the Rogue River Water Trail Map, a comprehensive guide to the Rogue River from Lost Creek Dam to Grave Creek.
