Rogue River peaks at 100,000 cfs
The Rogue River peaked last night at 100,000 cfs after a few days of warm rain. During the summer, we float down the river at 1,000 to 5,000 cfs so this is as much as 100 times as much water than we normally see floating down the canyon!
This is great news for the Rogue because these high flows are above the level of most of our camps. The high water revitalizes the sandy beaches by depositing more sediment(sand) and making our camps bigger and cleaner.
A few ECHO guides ran the Rogue on New Years of 2003 at 30,000 cfs and reported that Mule Creek Canyon was full. 100,000 cfs must have been really interesting.
