Rogue River, North Fork: Woodruff Bridge to North Fork Reservoir Professional Review and Guide
"The upper Rogue is a classic southern Oregon river that makes an excellent one-day destination for Class IV paddlers looking for year-round action. It makes a great warm-up run before a lower Rogue, Illinois, or Umpqua river trip. The area is relatively unpopulated but home to abundant wildlife. Brush and old-growth forest line the riverbanks.The North Fork Rogue’s frigid, crystal-clear water originates as snowmelt from the Cascade Range near scenic Crater Lake.Adequate flows are available year-round, since snowmelt and groundwater seep through the riverbed’s porous volcanic rock. A trail along river left allows scouting and hiking access for the length of the river. The North Fork Rogue provides technical, pool-drop Class III+ and IV+ water divided into two sections, above and below Woodruff Bridge Campground."
