Rogue River Fishing Guides, Southern Oregon

Rogue River

The Rogue River name draws deep reverence in the souls of those who have swung a fly through its cool, emerald pools. When you step into its waters, you step into a legacy of greats. Zane Grey, Ernest Hemingway, and Clark Gable have all swam their flies through its famous riffles.

The Rogue is known for its Summer Run Steelhead.

These fish hit the upper river from late August, and peak somewhere in late September or early October. These feisty chromers hang out in the upper river, until the larger winter fish join them sometime mid to late March and April.

There are catchable numbers of steelhead in the Upper Rogue for nearly eight months of the year, making it one of the highest producing rivers in the Northwest. The Rogue will allow you to fish productively when all your buddy's rods are collecting dust, waiting for their local waters to open.

Rogue River, Fly Fishing Destination

Like all winter steelhead, the Rogue fish are as cunning as any.

They lend themselves to the old adage of being the "thousand-cast fish", but when the emerald waters do give up their bounty, it's an adrenaline-dumping treat beyond compare.

If your passion is to catch steelhead on flies, you owe it to yourself to step back into a simpler time and fish the legendary waters of the Rogue.
