Umpqua River Fishing Report - Klamath River Fishing Report

Umpqua River Fishing - Klamath River Fishing The last couple of weeks have been hit or miss for the start of winter steelhead season. The heavy snow and rain has kept the rivers up and this is limiting the number of fishing days anglers and guides are getting in. We have been bouncing around chasing green water and chrome rockets on the Klamath, Umpqua, Chetco, and Coquille river systems. Consistently the Klamath River fishing has been a little better than most rivers with days ending in double digit adult steelhead catches and a bunch of half pounders to help pass the time. Klamath River Fishing Guide Rob and Ethan timed getting some Klamath River fishing in just right and was able to get 2 good days in before the river blew out again. They fished with Mario Gomez of Ironhead Guide Service and put 43 fish to hand (WOW). The water was big and the fish were hungry. They were eager to take a side drifted yarn and egg presentation, and the big fish were not afraid of annihilating

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. BONK

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.

This year we will be fishing for trophy winter steelhead on the Lower Klamath River below Orleans, CA and the Umpqua River out of Roseburg, OR.

Umpqua Steelhead fishing is steady and the horse power these fish have is unbelievable. We have been getting our fish side-drifting on yarn and eggs. The bite has been off and on some days better than others. Most boats are getting a couple fish a day, and the Umpqua fishing guides are seeing 3 to 5 fish a day. The weather has been incredible with temps in the 60's. We will be fishing for steelhead through April and have 4 days left to fill for the season. If you want to lace into some chrome give us a call before its too late.

Umpqua River fishing guides are finding a few fresh winter steelhead. We spent last last weekend trying to find places to fish do to recent rains. The river was still a little high but managed to hook into a a couple nice fish. The guides were picking up 3 to 5 fish a boat, with the plunkers doing just as good if not better. The rivers are dropping into shape and should start to fish good in the coming weeks. If you haven't booked your winter steelhead trip you might want to get on the horn, the peak of the season is coming soon and you don't want to miss out on these chrome rockets. (530) 598-0530

Steelhead fishing in the Pacific Northwest.

Took a leap and got a booth at the 2014 PNW Sportsman's Show in Portland. The show is in full swing and people are running around like kids in a candy store. I can say its been a great experience so far. Every day I make my way to one of the informative seminars, and learn a thing or two from some of the pioneers of the fishing industry.

Darren and his son Brady fished with us today on the Klamath River and both of them got there first steelhead. We were sidedrifting and pulling plugs today and ended up with around 10 metal heads. At the end of an all day trip on the river you know you planted the bug when an 8 year old says "I don't want to be done I want to go up and do it again".  Mission accomplished.
