It's That Time of Year Again - Umpqua Winter Steelhead

January, 25, 2017

It's that time of year again, winter steelhead fishing on the Umpqua river. We enjoyed our months on the southern Oregon coast fishing from the drift boat and raft for fresh from the ocean king salmon and steelhead on the Elk, Sixes and other nearby coastal rivers. The raft offered opportunities to explore new sections of river, not often floated.  One of our guests, Fred said, "I was moved by the upper Sixes, like in church perhaps." Truly amazing scenery, solitude and communion with kindred spirits. We will be offering this unique experience throughout the year on a variety of rivers in southern Oregon. But today we are excited to be back in the drift boat fishing the Umpqua river for some of the nicest winter steelhead in Oregon.
