We are still catching good numbers of Steelhead and a few Coho Salmon on the Rogue River. We have been having success on Flies, Roe, and plugs. Black and Crome Brads Wee Wiggler being a Steelhead favorite.
Low water on the Oregon Coast put a hold on Late Fall Chinook but recent rains have revived the season. There are still some available dates for the Chetco, Elk, and Sixes.
We are also currently filling remaining dates for Winter Steelhead on both Rogue and Umpqua Rivers. Join us for world class Steelhead fishing, going for big fish with light tackle. Our heated drift boats will help keep you comfortable on these cool winter trips. Adrinaline pumping cromers peeling line also help keep your temperature up. Please call for info and remaining available dates.
Rogue River Canyon 2012
It took me a while to update but we had the best fishing this fall that I have ever seen on the Lower Rogue Canyon. We spent most of September and October running four day lodge fishing trips and had great success with both huge hard fighting Chinook Salmon and many nice big chrome Steelhead. Lets just say that we did not have a shortage of fish for lunch, with fresh fish tacos on day two and alder smoked bbq fish for day three we were eatin good. Most of the Chinook action was on big flatfish style plugs and most of the stealhead action was on flies, plugs, and bait. We cover almost 62 miles on this trip so we have an oppertunity to fish many different techniques based on the conditions and what we are targeting. We do have a couple of dates open for next fall, so give us a call for a trip of a lifetime.
ROGUE RIVER FISHING REPORT
We boated our biggest Spring Chinook ever today up near the Cole Rivers Fish Hatchery on the Rogue River. 69lb bright crome King. This is looking to be a great start to the springer season. We got the hog trolling a plug cut herring cured in CHEETO'S powder with a night crawer wrap. It was a long 2 hour battle but we won and were able to beach the big fish just before our 6lb leader snapped. APRIL FOOLS!
Right now the water is high and muddy but still fishable at the top of the Rogue River. We have been picking up fish on plugs and side drifting roe and Yarn. Once the water drops toward the end of the week . There should be some great fishing all throughout the river. The Umpqua should see a few more weeks of good winter steelhead fishing aswell once the water drops. We havn't seen any Spring Chinook in the Upper Rogue yet but any day now. We still have some great dates available for the Spring Chinook Season. Give us a call to book a trip or if you have any
