Rogue River Spring Chinook

The Spring Chinook season is fast approaching the west coast rivers. We will be running springer trips on the famous Rogue River from April through June. These fish are the most sought after salmon in the lower 48, the high fat content make them hands down the best table fare you will find in a river. Its true when you hear the saying "springers make people go crazy". We have very limited availability for this short but highly rewarding season so get a hold of us sooner than later.

Umpqua River Fishing

The fishing and the weather have been amazing the past few week. We are seeing steady numbers of fresh fish entering the river systems. Plenty of hatchery fish around to bring joy to your brain and belly. We have been getting all of our fish side drifting yarn and eggs in the fast and slow water. The peak of the winter steelhead season is upon us now and if you haven't got your fill of the tug drug you better act now.

Smith River Fishing

We have been bouncing around fishing a lot of different rivers and here is the latest report. The Smith, Klamath, Umpqua, and Rogue rivers are all producing good numbers of steelhead. We participated in the Rowdy Creek Enhancement Derby this year and found some metal in the river that flows through the giant redwood trees. All of our fish came from side drifting yarn and eggs, the water was pretty heavy and if you weren't on the bottom you weren't fishing. The rivers are in shape and pretty crowded with chrome inhabitants. You still have a month to feel the steel.

Umpqua River Fishing

Spent the weekend chasing steelhead in southern Oregon, and did well. The rivers were very busy but all of the guides were seeing 5 to 10 fish a day. The bait, yarn, and fly's all produced fish. The larger river systems are just starting to come into shape and are stuffed full of fish. We seen fish come out of fast riffles, deep holes, and tail-outs. It looks like things are shaping up to be a pretty good winter steelhead season. The early high water allowed the fish to get up the rivers and spreed out before they got to beat up. The Klamath, Rogue, and Umpqua rivers are all seeing above average numbers of steelhead this year so you better get off your &%@ and put a line in the water. We have 6 days left to book this season, if you want to see some of these silver bullets on the end of your line you should call ASAP.

Umpqua River Fishing

This winter steelhead season has been challenging to say the least, we have been hit with one storm after another. If you can get a day or two of fishing in once the water comes back into shape you can do pretty good. The fish are not likely able to spawn in the heavy water on the main stems of some of our rivers so this season might last a little longer than normal. We will keep looking for green water to dredge.
