Salmon King Lodge Guide Service
Julie & Bill Divens

IGFA Certified Professional Guide Bill Divens splits his time between his homes in Gold Beach, OR and Red Bluff, CA.

Bill and his wife and “chief netting officer” Julie start their season in April targeting hard fighting spring chinook salmon on the Rogue River near Gold Beach, OR. Most years the “springer” run lasts through late June. They remain in cool Gold Beach over the summer where they target fresh from the ocean fall run chinook salmon through early September.

Early in Sept. Bill and Julie return to their home in Red Bluff, CA where they target fall run and late fall run Chinook salmon on the Sacramento River through mid-December. Over the winter, they target Sacramento rainbows and steelhead with both fly and conventional gear.

Bill has been featured in Western Outdoor News, Eureka Times, Redding Searchlight, The Great Outdoors with Tom Stienstra TV show, Sep Hendrickson’s California Sportsman radio show, and has been a seminar speaker at the International Sportsmen’s Expo.
