Rogue alternate trip suggestions

Ive got an 8/26 Rogue launch. Doing a rain dance for yall in the PNW. This will be my first trip to OR. If Taylor creek fire closes access, what would you choose for alternate boating options. We mostly will be in rafts and set up for multi day, but could car camp and do day trips. Thanks in advance.

8/26? I would worry about what your meal plan will be or what whiskey to bring. You will be fine.

There's still access Via lower Graves creek road off I-5 in wolf creek. Last I heard it was clear and beautiful down there. Depending where your coming from it could actually make the trip easier if they are still issuing permits at graves creek.

Have fun!

Try the Grand Rhonde in East/Central Oregon. No permit required.

And very little water this time of year. It is near historic minimums.

I went down last week. The smoke was pretty thick when we got to Missouri Bar, but the wind picked up in the afternoon and things cleared up. It was pretty clear from smoke the rest of the way. I'm headed down the Rogue again this Monday. I will give a smoke report when I get back.

Just got off the river. Clear blue skies for the first 3 days. Some smoke yesterday down lower due to the Klondike fire smoke blowing up river. It cleared up in the evening and was fine today. No guarantees it’ll stay that way, but it was a lot nicer in the river canyon than it is in the Rogue valley.
