Occasionally during the rafting season, forest fires in the region will cause smoke to settle in the Rogue River Canyon. Just like with rain, we float with smoke or no smoke. Every few years a forest fire will close the Rogue River. Please keep this in consideration while deciding to purchase trip insurance.
