Southern Oregon Fishing - Applegate and Upper Umpqua Rivers

It has been a fun spring testing out the raft on new sections of river.  The rivers are full of fish and water! Charlie landed this beauty on an upper section of the Umpqua river while I (Rochelle) was on the oars.  He said it was one of the most exciting days he'd had in awhile, fighting this beast through several rapids. The adrenaline was definitely flowing and, well, despite my squeaks of fear (thank goodness there was a professional guide in the boat coaching me through it) we landed the fish and made it to shore for a picture before she swam off with vigor.

Let's go!

The upper section of the Umpqua river and the Applegate, pictured above, offer scenic and remote fishing experiences with a sense of adventure.  Brady and Charlie landed a few nice fish from the bank of the Applegate yesterday between some fun class III rapids.
