Rogue River Salmon and Steelhead Fishing Trip Report.

We are still catching spring king Chinook salmon daily and are starting to catch more and larger steelhead. Right now we have the option of fishing from the hatchery to Dodge Bridge (near Shady Cove), if you are interested in hooking and landing more fish with less boats and keeping hatchery salmon or fishing Dodge Bridge and below if you are interested in taking fish home, having the option of keeping native, as well as hatchery fish. 

We are just a few weeks away from the arrival of Fall salmon. 

Ryan, Bailey and Chris fished with us along a road trip from California to Colorado. Chris hooked this nice Rogue river salmon and Bailey landed a sizable summer steelhead.

Lucas with his bet winning salmon.
Lucas came fishing with his parents Danielle and Rob and brothers Alex, Nathan and Nicholai.  Lucas won a $50 bet with this salmon. The biggest fish he'd caught since a 9 pound catfish. Lucas was so happy with his catch he wanted to kiss it, but he made guide Nate do it first (photos below). Thanks Nate!

Mark with an early morning salmon.
Mark and Patty, visiting from Texas landed a few nice salmon and steelhead.  Patty also brought her mom, Claire and 95 year old grandmother Edna along.  Both ladies hooked and fought nice big salmon and have great tales of the fish that got away.  The ladies discussing their revenge trip on the boat ramp!
