southumpqflow

I hadn’t been on the South Umpqua before this trip so I’m not sure what a good flow would normally be. We had 3000 – 3500 at Tiller (it had been raining a fair amount) and that felt to be a medium+ flow. Put in at South Umpqua Falls, which is really a weird, long slide. The river for the most part is flat and class II, but there is the occasional horizon line that got the juices going. The highlight of the trip was Campbell Falls.

I own and operate Indigo Creek Outfitters, an Ashland-based whitewater rafting company that runs trips on the Rogue and Klamath rivers. Shortly after I moved to Southern Oregon in 2004 I started exploring some of the nearby rivers and absolutely fell in love with the area.
