With a lot of rain hitting the coast this week i’m gonna start gearing up for winter steelhead. I’m done for the season on the Chetco River in Brookings… It was a really good start to the Season and just stayed steady. Side drifting by far did the best for me. I am now booking for winter steelhead fishing on the Umpqua, Chetco, Rogue, and Coquille rivers.  I hope to take you for a great day of fishing this winter!! If you’d like to get in on some of the BIG king salmon on the Chetco next year call soon to book a day! Its a short season and fills up fast!!! Here are a few of the fish from this season.  Our winter steelhead will start getting really good right about Christmas time.  It will continue all the way to May on some of the rivers. For the rest of November and December i’ll be catching summer steelhead and Coho on the upper Rogue.  Fishing the upper Rogue will be good till January, then we’ll switch over to winter steelhead on the coastal rivers.   Fill out the contact form and i can email you back or feel free to call or text to book a date. Take care and have a Great Thanksgiving !!!

Fishing Guide for The Rogue, Chetco and Umpqua Rivers

The spring chinook season is winding down in the upper Rogue.. But the Summer steelhead fishing has been fantastic!!!  Here very soon i’ll be targeting fall Chinook down river. It was a tough springer season.  Not many hatchery fish to be had this year. We did have a strong showing of native kings in June and July but they have been pretty well picked through in the upper river now. I have available dates for Steelhead and King salmon fishing in August, September, October on the Rogue.. Also open dates for the Chetco river King salmon in November.  Summer steelhead have been in great numbers already this year. For July we’ve been averaging 5 to 8 a day which is pretty awesome. August through November is when its best( average day 8 to 12). Fly fishing, bobber fishing and normal tactics,  side drifting and plugs have all been working very well..  Fall chinook are starting to show in the Middle river.. only a matter of time before it gets really good down there.  Hope you can join me or one of the guys on the River soon!!! Call or text  if you have any questions !!  hope to see ya soon!!!

Our fall chinook are starting to show in great numbers!!! Its been pretty darn good this last week.  With all of the doom and gloom everyone has been writing about has made the river pretty empty. Its been kinda nice with such few boats on the water. With plenty of water in the river, fishing has been really good. With a few days limiting out by 9:30 in the morning.

Summer steelhead fishing has also been red HOT!! We’ve been getting into 12 to 20 a day in the upper Rogue. Mostly fishing fly and bobber. I still have dates open for Fall chinook and summer steelhead if you’d like to get in on some pretty awesome fishing!!!

Also booking fall Chinook trips on the Chetco river in Brookings. Lots of very large kings caught on this little gem of a river ever year!!

Umpqua River Fishing Guide Report

   Fishing on the Rogue had just started to get pretty good before the heavy rains this week. Averaging 6 to 8 fish a day. The peak time for the Rogue is mid Feb to the end of March(for winter steelhead). I will be concentrating mostly on the Rogue and Umpqua rivers for the rest of the winter steelhead season. The Umpqua hasn’t been what we are use to this year (5 to 8 a day).. normally we average double digit days with quite a few days in the 20’s… though the numbers of fish haven’t been there, the size of the fish are quite large 🙂  These heavy rains we are having should help out in a big way and spread the fish through out the system… so the fish in certain runs aren’t getting beat on by everyone… which will help out in numbers of fish caught each day. With the rivers all high and muddy this week the fish should be very willing and gullable when they drop into shape next week. Call soon to book a day! Its about to get really good !!! 🙂
