Visit one of Oregon’s most beautiful rivers. Renowned for outstanding fishing environments and exhilarating whitewater challenges, the North Umpqua River offers an ideal setting for many recreational pursuits.
The North Umpqua provides the right challenge for all types of rafters and kayakers, from the placid Class I waters to roaring Class IV rapids. The best months to raft are May, June, and early July, depending on the weather. Later in the summer as the water flows decrease, floaters test their rock-maneuvering skills as the rapids become more technical.
When to Go: Avoid Floating 6 pm to 10 am, July 1 - October 31
Rafting Difficulty Level: Class III
Good For: This area offers multiple recreation opportunities from great whitewater adventures to steelhead and trout fly-fishing, hiking in old-growth forests and waterfall viewing. In this segment boaters will experience four Class III rapids and five Class II+ rapids. The river takes on a "pool-drop" nature as the rapids are separated by long stretches of flat water. The Class III rapids are very challenging at all flows and include a portage at Bathtub rapid at lower flows (below 1000 CFS). Rafters should scout carefully. At high flows in the spring, the rapids feature huge waves and holes that can flip a raft. The launch site is across the highway from Bogus Creek Campground, and the take-out is just down-river from the Susan Creek Day-use Area. http://www.blm.gov/or/districts/roseburg/recreation/wild_and_scenic_river/PDF/bogus_creek_to_susan_creek.pdf
