The Rogue River comes out of the National Wild and Scenic Canyon section at about 37 miles upstream from the Pacific Ocean and Gold Beach Oregon arriving at the mountain river town of Agness Oregon. Nestled in the Siskiyou National Forest 30 miles upstream from Gold Beach, near the confluence of the Rogue River and its largest tributary the Wild and Scenic Illinois River.
Rogue River Jet Boat Rides
A Siskiyou National Forest road following the Lower Rogue River canyon serves Agness as well as Tour Boat Rides bringing passengers upriver from the from Gold Beach Oregon.
Several lodges provide food, drink and lodging to river travelers as has been done here for most of a hundred years. The towns of Gold Beach and Agness are very dependent on the Rogue River for recreation and lively hood. The friendly people here seem displaced when not near the water for the river surely runs in their veins.
