DECEMBER - MARCH
Winter Steelhead (5-20 pounds) travel up the Rogue River this time of year. These fish are good eating and great fighters.
MARCH - JUNE
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.
JULY - OCTOBER
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.
FISHING THE PACIFIC OCEAN
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.
SURF FISHING FROM SHORE
Ask us about this fishery. You can catch Surf Perch and other species year 'round but April through July is normally best.
