Guided Fishing on the Lower Rogue

From Agness to Gold Beach

Salmon and Steelhead Fishing at its finest

on the Famous Wild & Scenic Rogue River!

Motorized Boat

Whitewater Training


Navigating the river safely can sometimes be unpredictable with the changing seasons. We offer motorized boat training with USFS approval for individuals who are interested.

Shuttle and Livery Services

We offer freight and passenger service on the river from Agness to Blossom Bar. This includes the Wild and Scenic section of the river. The river is not accessible by road from Foster Bar to Blossom Bar. This section of the river is only accessible by jetboat, raft, or the Rogue River Trail.


Normally it is just a ride in with the sole purpose of getting you and your gear to it's destination. If you see something along the way and you want to make a brief stop, we can accommodate you with as much time as you wish. (See rates)


For safety reasons, shuttle and livery services are limited to a combined weight of 1,500 pounds for passengers and equipment. Low water conditions may require lighter loads in the late fall.

Some roads may be closed due to weather conditions or hazards. Call us or the USFS in advance to get a road report and the best route for your trip.
