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

Rogue and Umpqua River Report

Well, we are still looking for a good storm to really get the winter steelhead season heated up on the upper Rogue River. Once we get it, like I've said before, a massive amount of winter fish will be charging upstream to spawn. As of today there are catchable numbers of fish from the middle and upper Rogue, but still, the majority of the run continues to hold in the lower river waiting for the water to rise. We have fewer than 100 fish in the hatchery, where as last year at this time we had over 1,000! Booking your trip in middle to late March or April is your best bet for Rogue River winter steelhead this year.

However, the Umpqua River has been producing solid numbers of big winter steelhead for me in early March. Even though we need rain here too now, great numbers of BIG fish have already made it to where I fish for them. Even a bit of snow melt could raise the water in this small river. There's not much time left in the season up there, so give me a call for more information on booking your Umpqua River trophy winter steelhead trip today! By the looks of the fish that we've hooked the past couple of days...The trophy fish are here!
