Rogue River Salmon

Rogue River
The Rogue River is a trophy hunter's dream from August through mid-October. Fish over 40 lb. are caught on a regular basis. These salmon are hot and full of fight right out of the ocean and the meat is superb.

Based in Gold Beach, OR, we fish the lower 37 miles of the Rogue from the comfort of our new 25' Willie Predator jet boat - the biggest & most comfortable boat on the river. With a highly coveted USFS permit to guide the Lower Rogue, we can follow salmon from the ocean to upstream holding waters.

Rogue Salmon Seasons

Spring Chinook – Arguably the best tasting salmon on the planet, "Springers" enter the Rogue in March and can be caught through June. Primarily an anchor fishery, we anchor in softer inside seams and fish anchovies or spinners for moving salmon.

Fall Chinook – Starting in early July, pre-spawn fall Chinooks enter the Rogue Estuary only to find a river too warm to run. As the summer progresses more salmon stack up in the Estuary where we catch them on weightless spinners and trolled anchovies. This unique situation provides dynamite salmon action in the Rogue Estuary through the summer.
September through mid-October, king salmon run the Rogue, holding in the lower river. We follow them up the lower Rogue River where we catch them on Kwikfish, weightless spinners and side drifted salmon roe.

Coho Salmon – The Rogue hosts a spectacular run of Coho (silver) salmon mid-Sept. through the end of Oct. Full of fight, silvers will take to the air like a steelhead and bulldog like a king. We target these acrobatic fighters by trolling anchovies or small plugs in the Estuary.
