Ethan's First Rogue River Spring Chinook
18# Elk River Winter Steelhead Fly-Fishing
Rogue River Fishing GuidesWe fish the Rogue the most of all the rivers as it has the most days with the best catch rates of all the Oregon rivers. We fish Winter Steelhead January - February and March then it is on to Spring Chinook in April - May and to mid June. The Fall Chinook fishery in the tidal area begins in earnest about the 10th of July and continues until October.
There is also a great Summer Steelhead fishery in September - October and November - when we usually are Fly Fishing for Summer Steelhead.
Only about 50 Rogue River Fishing guides hold Historical Use Permits from the US Forest Service to conduct guided trips above river mile 8 to river mile 37 - we hold a historical Lower Rogue River USFS Fishing Guide permit.
Illinois River at AgnessThe Illinois River is the Rogue's largest tributary entering the Rogue near Agness about 30 miles upriver from the mouth. The Illinois River is a wilderness river with little access and little traffic. When conditions are right the Illinois can be fantastic for Winter Steelhead. There is no King fishery on the Illinois - no bait is allowed either.
Only a very few guides (less than 10) hold Historical Use Permits from the US Forest Service to conduct guided trips on the Illinois - we hold a Illinois River historical guide permit.
Chetco River at BrookingsThe Chetco River is a wonderful fishery for both Fall Chinook and Winter Steelhead. Late December thru March is the time for Winter Steelhead. November 1st to end of December big late Fall Kings are on tap. There are some good days trolling below the Highway 101 bridge in October depending on weather and river flow. Crowds can be a problem as everyone loves to fish the Chetco River.
Elk River Fishing at Port OrfordThe Elk River is located just north of Port Orford and is one of the most exciting rivers to fish for late season Kings. Kings here are big and mean on the Elk. The Elk River is a joy to fish and we only use drift boats with no motors on the Elk above Hwy 101. The Elk is a very fast clearing stream after a rain. November and December are prime King months while February and March are best for Winter Steelhead. Weekends can be crowded during peak season but week days are not to bad.
Sixes River at Port OrfordThe Sixes River is just a mile or two north of the Elk but has a totally different character than the rowdy Elk River. The Sixes River is more relaxed and the river is more placid and carry's a darker water color and is slower to clear than the Elk River. As with the Elk the Sixes is all drift boat fishery. November and December are prime King months while February and March are best for Winter Steelhead. Weekends can be crowded during peak season but week days are not to bad.
Coquille River at BandonThe Coquille River is located just north of Bandon near the famous Bandon Dunes Golf Course. We fish the tidal influenced water trolling in our 22ft powerboat in September and October for nice Fall King and Coho or Silvers. Not crowded and a pleasant fishery.
Coos BayWe fish the tidal waters of Coos Bay in September and October for Kings and Coho or Silvers. A pleasant fishery with room to fish. Lots of fish caught here but they seem to be smaller than the other rivers.
