The Rogue River begins in the Cascade Range of Southern Oregon and empties into the Pacific Ocean some 200 miles later in the heart of the spectacular Oregon coast. Its beauty earned it a spot as one of the eight charter members of the National Wild and Scenic River System. We offer 1/2 day trips on the “Nugget” section of the Rogue River.

Why Momentum on the Rogue?
Our half day trip on the Rogue is one of Momentum’s three original trips. It is a great introduction to whitewater, one of our backyard rivers, and one we know like the back of our hands.

The same guides that guide our trips throughout Oregon, Northern California, Idaho, and abroad run our “Nugget“ trips – guides with a minimum of 5 years of experience on many of the world’s most difficult whitewater rivers, and guides that truly enjoy sharing the outdoors and their outdoor experiences with others.

The Nugget run of the Rogue is a great trip for those wanting a fun float with a few bigger rapids. We may see blue herons, golden eagles, and probably a fisherman or two. A very pleasant 1/2 day rafting trip capped with Nugget Falls and Powerhouse rapids. The Rogue is a wonderful taste of whitewater excitement, and is great for the intrepid first timer, families, and those on a short time schedule.


Join us on the Rogue and see why it has marked the beginning of a whitewater addiction for many of our guests.

  • "We had a GREAT trip down the Rogue with Robyn, Mara, and Mike - they were awesome! I wish all the boys and their girlfriends had been able to come along. We talked a lot about further trips, but not sure if we're not too picky - duckies a must, wetsuits yuck! and needs to be 5-6 days (4 days was too short!). Any ideas for next year? Maybe if we plan it enough in advance everyone can come. Has to be after the first week of June because our youngest is graduating from high school and probably won't want to miss it! Thanks again for an outrageous trip - food was great, people were great, service was great, rafting was great... Elizabeth (Peter, Tim and Kate) "
  • "We had a wonderful Rogue trip in August with Anthony while visiting Oregon Shakespeaer Festival. Excellent logistics with Medford pick-up right at our hotel. I recommend Momentum staff, Anthony, and this trip as a perfect add-on to any summer visit to the Ashalnd festival. The Petersens "
