Rogue River ?

I think this is horseshoe bend on the Rogue. A zillion years ago my dog and I ran it. What do you think the cfs was? Some local thought 100k. My 14' bucket is on the left.

Definitely Horseshoe Bend. Flow looks more like 20,000--definitely not 100,000.

100,000 is a flood flow on the Agnes gage, it has only been at or above 100,000 cfs in 15 of the years during peak flow since 1961. An ordinary high flow would be more in the 40 to 75K cfs. You can see the ordinary high water mark on the rocks in the photo way above the water level, so I would definitely concur with Mogur

Thank guys.
I was so worried about Rainie Falls that I hung my wet suit inside out on some poison oak the night before. Next day went right over it without even knowing it was there. Back in 83 or so.

Yea, I get into poison oak most every time I run the Rogue. On those years I'm successful at avoiding it, I find out later that my retriever gave it to me after he got into it on one of his walkabouts.

Thanks Will.
The local who gave me the 100k figure was in Agnes. Maybe by then it's up that high?

The photo I posted was when the Agness gauge was a touch over 90,000. At that flow the rock you can see in your photo extending from the right bank downstream is under water and creating monster hydraulics.

Rafting. I'm glad to have done it but probably wouldn't do it again. Here's another one of Horseshoe Bend:
