Rogue River

Rogue River

Our early morning start found us driving from Brookings to Gold Beach in heavy fog. We spent the day on one of Jerry’s Rogue Jets on the Rogue River. We chose the popular 104 mile round trip that continues beyond the 64 mile scenic section and the 80 mile taste of the wild river section which will be offered later in the summer. We passed successful salmon fishermen and rafters. The birds we saw included cormorants, osprey, bald eagles, turkey vultures, and geese. We also saw a turtle sunning itself on a rock. Our guide enjoyed spinning the boat and spraying us with water. We turned around at Blossom Bar Rapid and stopped for lunch at the Cougar Lane Lodge. We had great weather for this interesting river adventure.
