Still having some fun blasting & casting on the Rogue. The upper Rogue river has opened back up for bait and we have been doing good on the middle Rogue fishing plugs and flies. We are currently booking winter Steelhead trips on the Rogue and Umpqua rivers for January through April. All gear is included and our boats are heated. You can book online or over the phone. See you on the river soon!
The Rogue Canyon is a special place in the Fall. We look forward to this time of year every year. Starting in September we are targeting Fall run Chinook Salmon and Summer run Steelhead. As the season progresses we start seeing a good number of "half-pounders" . This year we finished off the season in October with a strong run of Coho Salmon. The Coho's are a blast to catch on light tackle. We were getting them on bait, plugs and flies. We are currently booking four day three night trips for the 2024 season.
With consistent river flows all season we have seen a nice shot of chrome bright Summer run Steelhead. We have been having success pulling plugs and on flies. Pound for pound these are some great fighting fish. Nothing beats the take down on a light plug rod. Note: just because they are on the hook doesn't mean they are coming to the boat. These fish are fighting for their lives and we are just here to have a good time. We are just over a month away from our first Rogue Canyon Fishing Trip of the season. Fall on the Rogue is one of our favorite times of the year.
We had a great Fall Season on the lower Rogue Canyon. The water levels cooperated and the fishing was great! Have you ever thought about a multi-day wilderness adventure WITHOUT CELL SERVICE?

We will be spending the rest of the winter fishing the Rogue and Umpqua river systems for hard fighting Winter Steelhead. We fish the winter run from January into April. All gear is included and we use heated drift boats to keep you comfortable on colder days. Here are a few of the winter fish from last season.
The Rogue River is still high and muddy but the South Umpqua River is in great shape. Drift fishing is the technique. If you have not drift fished before, you should know it is a fun and active way to catch steelhead. We use top of the line gear to give you the best chance for an exciting battle with the fish of a life time. Umpqua steelhead average around 8 pounds with much larger fish caught on occasion. We are only about a week into Steelhead season on the Umpqua and fishing will continue to pick up as the season moves on. Steelhead fishing on the Umpqua starts slowing down in April. Remember our comfortable drift boats have forced air propane heaters to help keep you warm on these cool winter mornings. Contact us for more info or lodging accommodations for multiple day fishing trips.
