Salmon and Steelhead Fishing through the Holidays!

With the coastal rivers being low and clear, we moved back to the Rogue for a week to fish for some late summer steeelhead. Steelhead fishing has been good on the upper Rogue, a bit later into the season than usual. In the past few weeks a large number of steelhead have entered the hatchery.  We've had some beautiful blue sky days catching limits of hatchery steelhead and doing a bit of catch and release with some nice natives. Most of our guides are in the Rogue valley ready to fish through the holidays on the upper Rogue. For current fishing opportunities in the southwest region check out the ODFW fishing report

Charlie and I have returned to Port Orford for the holidays and, well, when the rivers are too low and clear to fish they are still perfect for kayaking. And when a storm is off shore there is great surf, but today we (from the comfort of the house) are watching a big coastal storm blow in (gale force winds, heavy rain and a bit of hail!) It is predicted that we will get over an inch of rain today and we think that the Elk will return to fishable conditions by tomorrow. We will keep you posted... Elk and Sixes rivers' fishing conditions report.


Through the end of December we will be offering fishing trips for late summer steelhead on the upper Rogue near Medford/Ashland and Chinook king salmon on the Elk river near Port Orford.

In January we begin fishing trips for Winter Steelhead  (January through April) on the upper & middle Rogue river, the Umpqua river & the rivers of the southern Oregon coast.
