The headwaters of the Rogue are found at 5,300 ft. as jubilant springs bursting from the west side of Crater Lake National Park. The upper Rogue tumbles through a volcanic legacy before entering a valley plateau where the river is impacted by urban development, pollution, and use. Leaving the valley near Grants Pass, Oregon, the river cuts a deep Wild & Scenic river canyon before reaching the Pacific Ocean 215 miles from its hydrological beginnings. The Rogue is famous for its whitewater rafting, abundant salmon and steelhead fishery and Wild & Scenic status.

Robyn was born and raised in Southern Oregon and has spent most of her life working on the water. As a teenager, Robyn discovered her love of the water as a professional river guide and has been introducing people to the rivers of southern Oregon, northern California and beyond ever since. Robyn feels most at home on the river and has an intimate relationship with the Rogue and its watershed. Robyn graduated from Southern Oregon University with a BS in Art. Through her experiences as a river guide, Robyn has been an inspiring river steward, educating people about the uniqueness of river environments and demonstrating how people can protect these special places that we love.
