Near the Rogue River and Gold Beach on the southern Oregon coast, Lobster Creek provides a vibrant whitewater experience during high water in winter and early spring. If other area runs are too high, paddlers who need their whitewater fix can opt for this enjoyable run. The creek is runnable during winter and early to mid-spring. though it does get pretty bony if it hasn’t rained for a week or two. If water comes to the base of the bridge abutment on river left at the take-out, it’s a good sign of minimum flow. The creek never gets too high but can become very pushy, developing a couple of river-wide holes, especially at Shotgun. At high water, a significant backwater effect from the Rogue River makes it difficult to tell just how high the creek is running at the take-out.
