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.

  • "Hi Momentum crew, Ah...thanks for all the kind words and thoughts! How nice.....but truly the thanks go to all of you... Ann and I were hiking last night and she mentioned writing to you now that we were back from Almanor, but you beat us to it. So from the bottom of our hearts, and no doubt these words are echoed by all, many many thanks for a great trip. You made it works so well and look so easy - something that is a true art. We had so much fun. It was peaceful and relaxing and beautiful and exciting all wrapped up into a wonderful time. We missed mom and dad terribly, but certainly they were there with us in spirit. As the reigning queen of the 'Oreo cookie drip down the face', I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to share the wonderful Rogue River with all of you! Have a great rest of the season. Our very best...till next time! Xoxoxoxo Nancy "
