With all this warm weather, it was a great day for around 80 people hit the to the water on the Rogue River to bring attention to conservation.

Organizers of the 'Flotilla of the Wild Rogue' event say they want to raise awareness to the importance of a environmentally healthy river.

Officials say their chief concern? The number of salmon swimming up-stream.

Officials say it's also important to preserve the lower rogue area because of the millions of tourism dollars it brings in every year.
