Northwest Rafting Co. on the Deschutes

August has been an intense month for the Rogue River community. As many of you know, the Big Windy Complex Wildfire caused the Bureau of Land Management to close the Wild and Scenic section of the Rogue River on July 30th.

Rowing down the Rogue River

This time last week I was heading out to the Rogue River, ecstatic to be participating in the Class III Rowing School.

What a great experience to be able to try so many different boats – to get a feel for what kind of oars or oar rights you like, what size… Read More
