Upper Rogue River Paddle

  • May 5, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • Upper Rogue Put-In

Dust off those paddles and come join us for our first Rogue River paddle of the year.

 

I have to work on Saturday so I can't attend the Pine River Paddle hosted by JC this weekend. So I decided to host this one on Sunday for myself and any of you who can't make the Pine Paddle or who want to get out and enjoy the beautiful sunshine.

 

Everyone is welcome to join the paddle on Sunday for some much needed water therapy.

 

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.

 

Experience Level:

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.  Weather is going to be super nice but you may want to bring a fleece in case it's windy.


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. Look fore our WMKC signs.

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.

    Great fun. River was high enough to miss alot of the rocks and down trees. A couple portages and limbo with a few trees. Perfect!

      Yeah, I had to go hunting for it also. For anyone else, I find that[masked] Mile Road NE, Rockford, MI gets it pretty close and should work for most map websites.

      Man, wish I could edit that last comment, I can't really find a good address, that part of 11 mile seems to be elusive for google maps.

      May 5, 2013

  • TERESA R.

    I am not finding jewel at all?

    May 5, 2013

  • TERESA R.

    Do you have a better description of how to get to the meetup place from GR? The map take you to a place that seems pretty far from the river. Is the sign going to be on 11 mile road to the right of the river? Thanks

    I'll admit, this is my first paddle in a while. What will the water temp be and what kind of clothing is recommended?

    May 3, 2013

    • Brian F B.

      And always bring a change of clothes just in case something interesting happens.

    I went from Jewel to Summit on Saturday and there were two portages. Both as easy as the trip.

      By the way, if anyone finds an Apple iPhone 5 double in an otter box case and double ziplock bagged, It's mine, lol. it would be about an hour before Summit, but I'm not holding my breath, lol

      (hazards of keeping your phone and your smokes in the pouch on the back of the seat and assuming that thud you heard when reaching for your smokes was the phone falling INTO the boat, and not out of)
