Shifted Days for warmer conditions.
Dust off those paddles and come join us for a mid April paddle. Lets meet at 11 mile and Jewell, shuttle to Rockford and do a 3 hour paddle. Afterwards lets meet at Sam's Joint for lunch.
We will shoot for Paddles! In! at 12:45. Group photo before paddles in.
Beginner. This is a great river to get your feet wet with river kayaking.
This time of year, the upper rogue moves just a little swifter, and in years past we have had at least one fallen tree to portage, sometimes three. Might be a little chilly, so layer up.
Directions to Jewell and 11 Mile:
131 to Rockford exit. Go west over 131 to Jewell. Go right (North) onto Jewell and go about 1.5 miles to 11 Mile Road. Go left (West) and the put in is on the bend in the road before you go over the river bridge. Be careful or you'll miss the right turn into the put-in spot.
Be aware the parking and boat drop off gets a little crowded at the put in, so be prepared to move your vehicle. Volunteers for shuttle are welcomed, please see one of the organizers.
