I would have to agree with bucketboater. If you do find yourself in need you have a couple options. If you have a filter, iodine tablets (do people still use these?), or are one of those that drinks from a spring then there are numerous very clean streams. No need to filter water from the river as there are numerous streams. Rum Cr., Little Windy Cr., Kelsey Cr., Carrot Cr., Long Gulch and Tate Cr. are creeks that I have gotten water from. I usually treat or filter. I have drank from some of the smaller ones over the years but I don't think I would recommend it.Rogue is 34 miles. 2-3 frozen gallons in cooler and a couple more in a dry box or on the floor j.i.c. No reason to pump or hunt for water on such a short trip.
