Lower Rogue River

Fall/Winter Steelhead $600/day 1 or 2 anglers

Minimum 2 days consecutive booking

The lower Rogue River Canyon plunges into the rugged and remote Siskiyou Mountains. The lower Rogue is a place of solitude and generations have spent their lives dedicated to her currents. From steep canyon walls still ever shifting, to the wide open expanses kissed with a salty breeze, just being there you’ve connected before your rod is in hand. We offer guided drift boat trips targeting Summer and Winter run adult and “half-pounder” steelhead. These are sexually immature steelhead ranging from 14 to 24 inches. They are small but extremely active and aggressive – making them very fun to catch. Depending on the season we fish for Fall Chinook, and Coho as well with a swung fly.
