Hellgate Jetboat Excursions relief

Grants Pass, Ore., — A wet winter is leading to a lot of positivity for businesses that rely on the Rogue River.

For 59-years Hellgate Jetboat Excursions has been running tours on the Rogue, but the length of their season depends on how much water is available.

Last summer they were forced to close weeks earlier than planned, in early September, because there just wasn’t enough water.

But this year things are looking up.

General manager Travis Hamlyn says he’s expecting to get the numbers early in May, but he’s already expecting them to have a full season from May to October.
