86 New Wild and Scenic Rivers!

Today, President Obama signed the Omnibus Public Lands Bill into law, thereby protecting 86 rivers under Wild and Scenic status and over 350,000 acres of public land.

The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act:

It is hereby declared to be the policy of the United States that certain selected rivers of the Nation which, with their immediate environments, possess outstandingly remarkable scenic, recreational, geologic, fish and wildlife, historic, cultural or other similar values, shall be preserved in free-flowing condition, and that they and their immediate environments shall be protected for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Congress declares that the established national policy of dams and other construction at appropriate sections of the rivers of the United States needs to be complemented by a policy that would preserve other selected rivers or sections thereof in their free-flowing condition to protect the water quality of such rivers and to fulfill other vital national conservation purposes. (Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, October 2, 1968)

The Rogue River Pub & Grub

Spring is just around the corner in Southern Oregon and this means one thing: rafting season is nearly upon us. June will soon be staring us in the face, and the Rogue River Pub & Grub is where you will want to be.

For three days you will float the beautiful Rogue River, pounding through world-famous rapids, spending nights at luxury river-side lodges, and enjoying the best beers brewed in Oregon.

Oregon is famous for two things: the many Oregon rafting trips one could adventure on and the tasty brews that can tickle anyone's palette. Ask any Oregonian what their favorite beer is and you sure to hear a few unfamiliar names. There are local favorites in every town, which made nailing down our pick for the Rogue River trip was pretty difficult. Nevertheless, when it comes to consistently good beer from Oregon, Full Sail Brewing does it best.

Need more information about this trip. We've designated a page on our site just for this trip: Full Sail on the Rogue River.

You can also read our press release about the trip: Specialty Theme Trips on the Rogue River.

Rogue River Cuisine

Rogue River rafting trips are naturally fun, exciting, and beautiful. It takes a special outfitter, however, to make them tasty as well. In January, our Idaho-side of Idaho & Oregon River Journeys was featured in They featured one of our August Middle Fork of the Salmon rafting trips - an amazing section of river 100 miles in length.

On the Rogue, we make a lot of the same dishes that our Idaho crew does; which basically means the same great food. For your Rogue river rafting experience, make sure you choose an outfitter who promises, not only a great river experience, but a fabulous dining experience as well. Make sure you choose Rogue River Journeys.
