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 fantastic experience rafting down the rogue last week. Alan was our amazing and calm guide and Swirl and Lucy drove us to and from our location. We were well informed and educated about the river and the trip. Alan also kept us laughing and feeling very safe. The company made sure we were warm on quite a chilly morning. We are ready to do the Upper Klamath next time. Thank you so much for making our trip up to drop off our youngest to U of O much more memorable. "
