We’ve partnered with Roadtrippers to provide a great way to plan a trip around Oregon. So start planning your next road trip to here, there or pretty much anywhere in Oregon.

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 1-14 and completely from July 15 - October 31

Rafting Difficulty Level: Class II+

Fish: Steelhead

Good For: Renowned for its excellent summer steelhead fly-fishing opportunities, the Gravel Bin to Bogus river segment provides a unique challenge to anglers from all over the world. Popular since the early 1900's, fly fishing for the elusive summer steelhead is the primary use of this segment from July through October. To protect the fly angling experience, floaters should avoid this segment from 6 pm to 10 am July 1 through July 14, and completely from July 15 through October 31 each season. The segment has one Class III rapid and five Class II+ rapids. Gravel Bin and Bogus Creek launch sites both have ample parking and turn-around space.
