Guided salmon and steelhead fishing on Southern Oregon's Rogue, Umpqua and Chetco

Fishing the Upper Rogue River near Medford, Ore. in March and April for Winter Steelhead

There are good numbers of winter steelhead making their way into the upper stretches of the Rogue River near Medford, OR.
Cat Lipe of Grants Pass, Ore. fished with me today for 4 hours from Cole Rivers Hatchery to Rogue Elk Park and had great success. Her limit of 9 pound hatchery steelhead (shown below) confirms the rumor of this year being a "big fish year."
With the light rain we are seeing in the Rogue Valley for the next few days, a lot more fish are expected to flood upstream.
The steelhead will continue to pile up until the month of May, where our focus then turns to Spring Chinook Salmon. On any given day fishing for steelhead in the month of April we have a chance of catching the first "Springer" of the season.
