going to souther Oregon. Help!

I'm traveling from Utah to Southern Oregon to visit my girlfriends parents in Medford. I don't know anything about kayaking in Oregon but would love to find a sweet little (or big) wave to play on. Can anybody be so kind as to point me in the right direction? Much thanks.

There are some spots on the Rogue River in between Medford and Grants Pass but I don't know what levels they come in. Also, there is supposed to be a good spot on the Klamath river, just over the CA state line, about an hour south of Medford.

You might try contacting Kokopelli River Guides in Ashland, the local kayak shop.

Depending upon how far you want to drive, south of Medford over the border into California is the Klamath River, about an 1 hour drive. There is a awesome surf wave at Schoolhouse rapid during summertime flows. Park and hike in. Currently, that part of the Klamath is running about 5900 CFS, Seiad Valley gauge, a bit high!
