The Rogue River is famed for its Steelhead, the fish of a thousand casts. In fresh water there is perhaps no other fish that provides the majesty, spectacular leaps and sizzling runs of a steelhead. Fortunately the Rogue has one of the most prolific returns of fish on the planet and our guides most often experience multiple hooks ups rather than thousands of casts per day.
The run is a blend of wild and hatchery fish that typically arrive starting in summer and peaking in November often stuffing emerald pools with remarkable numbers of fish. The fishing remains good into March when weather and flows allow. The average fish run 4-8 pounds with occasional beasts over ten. There are also half pounders and some fine resident and sea run Cutthroats that add to the mix.
The Rogue is a medium sized river that winds down incredibly scenic canyons and through several Oregon communites with ideal flows to navigate with driftboats and rafts which we use to fish the finest runs and access prime wading spots. We feel fortunate to have this gem in our backyard and believe it is an ideal venue for both the novice and seasoned steelheader seeking the sweet sound of a singing reel.
