Umpqua River Fishing

The winter steelhead season on the west coast has been a little hard on the guides and fisherman this year with the amount of rain we have received. The coastal rivers and the upper sections of the main rivers dropped into shape this last weekend and are fishing good. Looks like we will receive a little more rain this weekend but the rivers are forecasted to be back in shape by the middle of next week. We are still seeing plenty of fresh fish for being well over half way into the season. I have been bouncing around fishing what green water I can find and we have been finding a few fish. I have a few dates left in March so lets go get a metalhead before the game is over.

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

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.

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 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.

Umpqua river steelhead fishing is still producing some nice spring steelhead. We have been getting a few opportunities a day and folks have been taking advantage of the great weather. There is some talk of a few springers getting caught and we are starting to book our spring Chinook trips on the Rogue and Umpqua rivers. Do not let this springer season pass you buy and give us a call today to see what we have in store for the 2015 season.

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.

The steelhead fishing on the Umpqua River has been steady for the last couple of weeks. We saw heavy boat pressure this weekend but most boats were getting 1 to 3 fish with the guides fairing a little better. We were side-drifting yarn and eggs and had a great weekend on the river. We are closing in on the peak of the season but should see good fishing through April. You still have a couple of months to get into a fish of a lifetime so call us today. (530) 598-0530

Umpqua Steelhead Fishing

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 on the Umpqua River in Oregon.

Headed north to the Umpqua River for the weekend and day one was a blast. We got into some serious chrome and heard drag peeling all day. The river is loaded with fish, and everyone was catching fish and having a good time.
