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

Spring Chinook Salmon on the Rogue River in July - Gary of Klamath Falls, Ore. Limits-Out on Rogue River Springers

Gary traveled out to the upper Rogue from Klamath Falls, Oregon and had immediate success for Spring Chinook. He started his morning off how a lot of anglers wish theirs did by setting the hook on a nice 12 pound hatchery fish. It absolutely chomped down on his back-bounced roe and shrimp combo. Our next two salmon came on a diver and roe, but unfortunately both came off after a few seconds of head shaking. The bite was on! Our fourth and final fish that we hooked came directly after a fresh sardine wrap that I put on my favorite Kwikfish. This fish grabbed our lure and turned downstream with it driving that trouble hook deep into the corner of its mouth. All that we seen from above the water was Gary's rod fold over towards the water! It was about 8:30 a.m. and we had a beautiful limit of salmon in the fish box. It sure is nice when a plan comes together!
What a great day with an equally great fisherman. We enjoyed a peaceful morning of sharing fishing stories and drinking fresh coffee while hooking salmon. The action luckily never really slowed down for us until that second hatchery fish hit the net an we were limited. We got Gary's fish on ice as soon we could and he traveled back to Klamath Falls with his head held high and a few new fishing tales for the memory bank.
Thanks Gary and we'll see you again sometime!
 Tight lines boss!

Dinner on the bank!
Right where I like um! In the bottom of the net!
Gary's first salmon of the morning!
This fresh hatchery Springer slammed Gary's Kwikfish!
I like it when they bite like this!
