“Wood River Kayaking Day”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We took the "all day" Wood River guided kayaking trip down the Wood River. We had a wonderful time and the young guide was very knowledgable and competent. The Wood River is beautiful, especially at the headwaters start of the trip.

This float is not as advertised to us; a nature river float. Instead its an aggressive river paddle that demands some paddling skill and stamina. We were in constant danger of running aground. The river bed is full of very uneven gravel spread in somewhat unpredictable patterns, and a share of submerged log hazards. The current is swift. Forget nature watching except for short times of feeling safe enough to raise the binoculars. But enjoy the challenge of finessing the kayak through the hazards and you have a fun experience similar to "whitewater for advanced beginners".

The web site for Roe Outfitters is not your friend. These people are busy outdoor people and web sites are for office types. Call ahead and discuss your needs. If the office is empty, try again. They have the equipment and knowledgable staff to design a fun day of outdoor adventure. Wood River was also advertised as "all day" but we were done by 2:00. Okay, could not have paddle too much longer anyway.

“Paddle Boarding Adventure!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Roe outfitter has recently added the use of paddle boards to their already excellent selection of outdoor activities. At first I was hesitant about paddle boarding because I have horrible balance. In the end I absolutely loved it! It is a fun and easy family activity, a unique change from the other outdoor activities. It's a great and inexpensive way to get active and enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Oregon. I would highly suggest it to anyone looking for a fun family outing!

“Outstanding fly fishing”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

My husband and I fished two rivers with Darren; the Keno Section of the Klamath and the Williamson, and it was a highlight of our life to be able to access those wonderful fisheries. Darren is an expert guide; he knows the water like the back of his hand and when we followed his instructions we were well rewarded...lots of big wild rainbows. We also had the fun of shooting some rapids as an added dividend, always knowing that Darren would handle the raft expertly. And we loved the scarcity of other fishermen; so many places have lots of good fish, but also lots of rods. We felt like we were the only ones in this beautiful remote location. My husband and I are in our 80s, but if God is willing we'll be back to the Roe Outfitters.

“Sage Rat Hunting”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

I recently completed my 3rd year of "Sage Rat" (Belding Ground Squirrel) hunting with Darren Roe of Roe Outfitters in Klamath Falls, OR. We had the experience of a lifetime getting into a field that had never been hunted. In the first two hours of our hunt I alone went through 300 rounds of ammunition, missing only a hand full of "Rats" in this Southern Oregon Varmint Extermination Area. Darren and his wife Jennifer are always very friendly and helpful in getting our trip planned and will even set up lodging for you. Darren also has really good equipment. Hunting is from a trailered double decker shooting platform with outrigger stabilizers. There are two positions on both levels. The platforms can be removed from the trailer and placed on the ground as well for more variable shooting positions. But there is no hiding in the grass for the Sage Rats from the elevated trailer. Bring your own weapons (all of them for more fun), plenty of ammunition and a lunch, Darren provides the logistics and expertise. I had two of my young grandsons with me, one was his very first hunting trip. Darren was very helpful in giving the youngest boy plenty of help freeing me up to do lots of shooting and provided a safe hunt that was fantastic. I recommend this guides service for plenty of shooting fun. We already have next years trip set up.
