During September, October, and November, we offer Rogue fishing trips on drift boats. Adult summer steelhead (4 to 10 pounds) and the world-famous half-pounders are traveling up from the ocean to the upper sections of the Rogue River at this time. Adult Chinook and Coho salmon, often known as silver salmon, are also migrating up the river.
There are several different fishing techniques used on the Rogue depending on the time of year: fly fishing, spin casting, bait bouncing, and trolling plugs. Our guides have mastered them all. We will provide you with all fishing rods, tackle, bait, and flies. If you have a favorite, suitable rod, feel free to bring it along.
Nothing compares to this memorable wilderness experience. You will not only enjoy the fishing but also the breathtaking beauty and plentiful animals as we float the wild and scenic Rogue River Canyon with its rough white water and placid ponds. You might spot osprey, wild turkey, bald eagles, otters, turtles, deer, and perhaps a black bear while drifting.
Your guide will point out historical landmarks. You can stroll up to Zane Grey’s Cabin and picture him working on his Western novels. Learn about the first white settlers to the canyon and the Rogue Indians on a short stroll to the Rogue River Historical Museum.
Our nights will be spent at Black Bar Lodge and Paradise Lodge, two magnificent rustic river lodges. You will enjoy beautiful lodgings and first-class cuisine at Black Bar and Paradise. Individual cabins with two visitors per room, hot showers, heaters, and nice beds are available at the lodges. Friendships are formed here, and the number of fish stories grows each year.
Each of our trips may accommodate up to 12 people. These trips are ideal for a family getaway, a group of friends, or a corporate outing.
