Rogue River Lodge Activities: Fishing

Fish the Rogue River & Pacific Ocean

The Rogue River is known worldwide for its salmon and steelhead runs. Local guides provide the boats (covered and heated for extreme conditions), gear and expertise. For the purist, guided fly fishing is also available.

Winter Steelhead (5-20 pounds) travel up the Rogue River this time of year. These fish are good eating and great fighters.

Spring Chinook (or King) salmon are caught between Gold Beach and Agness (2 to 35 miles upriver). Similar to Fall Chinook, these "Springers" are in peak physical condition as they leave the icy waters of the Pacific Ocean and enter the Rogue system in search of their spawning grounds. Known for their mouth-watering flavor, Spring Chinook Salmon range in size from 10 to 40+ pounds.

Troll (fisherman talking for slowly driving a boat around with baits and/or lures trailing) the Rogue River Bay for Fall Chinook Salmon. These fish range in size from 10 to 50+ pounds and put up a great fight. A 71.4 pound Rogue River Chinook made the World-Record books! It was caught on a fly with 7.2 pound test line. Ask us for the 'Rest of the Story'!! Summer Steelhead ("Half-Pounders") also provide catching excitement this time of year.

If you've never boarded a charter boat and headed out onto the Pacific Ocean for some deep sea fishing, you've missed one of life's greatest pleasures. Ask us for Charter Boat Services, which operate out of the Port of Gold Beach. The offshore fishery here is hard to beat...and you don't have to go far. Directly offshore lies the Rogue River Reef. This area and the waters that surround it are home to an incredible variety of fish species. You're likely to hook Ling Cod, Rockfish, Cabezone, Snapper etc. Added bonuses include Dungeness Crab (in season), beautiful coastline, whales, sea lions, seals and many, bird species.

Ask us about this fishery. You can catch Surf Perch and other species year 'round but April through July is normally best.
