Steelhead are a hard fighting, acrobatic fish that can be caught in  a variety of ways, from rolling bait to back trolling plugs, or just sitting on anchor and waiting for them to come to you.

Spring Chinook Salmon


The Hardest fighting and best eating fish we have on the lower Rogue River!


Starting up the channel in Gold Beach, the Chinook are plentiful! These fish are caught by anchoring up and back bouncing bait on spinners to a desired length and then just waiting for the fish to strike.


Then hang on as we come off anchor and chase the fish down stream.

A truly exciting fishing experience!
