Rattlesnake Rapids is the toughest white water to negotiate on the upper Rogue River, and it often scares rafters and driftboaters away from boating the section between Dodge Bridge and TouVelle State Park.
Learn how to pick your way through Rattlesnake in the latest video posted on the Mail Tribune's Rogue River Guide, an online project devoted to giving viewers detailed and useful information about the Rogue.
In addition to a growing archive of videos, the guide includes an interactive map that shows fishing-access points, offers navigational tips and provides other information about the upper Rogue that's useful for anglers, boaters and rafters.
The videos are produced by Mail Tribune outdoors writer Mark Freeman and staff photographer Jamie Lusch as they continue their float downstream to the ocean. View the videos and map at www.mailtribune.com/rogueriverguide or click on "Rogue River Guide" at www.oregonoutdoors.com.
