October is a great month to run the Rogue. Leaves turn color, lots of wildlife, fewer people, and fun flows are all great reasons to see the Rogue in the fall. This year, we used a Rogue River Journeys October launch as an “all-lodge” trip. On the first night we stayed at Black Bar and our second night was at Paradise. On the trip were Steve W. (ARTA), Joe D., Dick L., and Rachel L. (ECHO), Greg H. and Jack (Far-Flung), and Will V, Bob V, and Dana W. (KRO and IORJ). We had a great time floating, bloating, and telling stories.
