On this trip we had five rafts. Flow was low. I think you take the above gauge and divide in half for actual flow. If someone knows better please let me know in the comment section below. The crux at this flow was the second drop of the the first rapid (after entry rapid and sharp right turn). You can go left or right. Boats that tried to go right got spanked a bit. Boats that went left did alright. At this flow, it is tough to have a “clean” line in there with a raft because it is so tight.

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.
