Ben starts paddling into a big riffle on the Rogue River, with Caitlin leading the way.

Outlaws and Ruffians Paddling the Rogue

It's a yearly adventure: rent some custom, hand-made mini-catamarans, get dropped off at Hog Creek near Merlin, Oregon, and spend a day running the riffles all the way downriver to Argo Rock. This year the water was a little lower, but that only made things more fun. There's a big cliff to jump off and some really great pull-outs where you can refresh and refuel. Only one place rents out those minicats: River Dance Raft Rentals & Sales, 561 Merlin Galice Hwy, Merlin, OR. Tel: 541- 472-9506.
