The Rogue and Klamath Rivers have plenty of water in 2015

Today I took another reservation for a rafting trip on the Rogue River Nugget in July. Since this winter has been lower snow pack than normal, the lady on the phone asked “So what’s the river going to be like in July?”. This was not an unexpected question. I’ve already responded to many calls and emails asking the same thing, so I was prepared. I’ve also been doing my research on what the real story is with Southern Oregon rivers in 2015.

We are very lucky here in Southern Oregon because our rivers, the Rogue and the Klamath are both dam controlled…

“The Rogue and Klamath Rivers have plenty of water in 2015…”

 “It was our first trip on the Upper Klamath and with Kokopelli River Guides, but I must say it blew our expectations out of the water and we had the best trip of our lives. The team at Kokopelli were professional, knew their stuff and were amazing guides; we felt like old friends by the end of the day!”
