    Welcome to my site and to the Southern Oregon coast, my name is John Anderson, Founder of Memory Makers Guide Service, this is where I have been fishing for Salmon and Steelhead since 1988 and have been blessed to make Gold Beach, Oregon, the mouth of the Rogue River, my home.

    Come and fish for Salmon and Steelhead on the rivers of the southern Oregon coast with Memory Makers Rogue River Guide Service and make happy memories for a life time.

    I fish three primary rivers: the lower Rogue River in Gold Beach, the Coquille River in Bandon, and the Coos River in Coos Bay/North Bend. When you fish with me, we’ll fish whichever river is having the best runs of Salmon at the time. However, your choice always come first, as my goal is to please you with the best adventure possible.

    Client Stories

    On July 30th and 31st, 2009, Don and Susan Gruener along with their daughter-in-law and two grandkids did some salmon fishing on the Rogue River at Gold Beach to celebrate Don’s 60th birthday. The two days of fishing proved to be red hot with five-year-old Clay Smith winning the biggest fish of the trip award when he caught his first salmon ever, a 38-pounder (with a little help from dad, Aaron Smith). Ten-year-old Clara Smith fought and landed a very respectable 30-pounder her first salmon also.

    All told between the one and a half days of trolling the bay and with the help of John Anderson, Memory Maker Guide Service, the five family members that fished landed a total of 208 pounds of hot and hard fighting salmon.

The Rogue is producing some really nice fish right now. Nothing can be than can be this 26 pounder which fought like a 36 pounder lon the line. We had 3 more bites that didn’t hook up for us today and saw 30 or 35 out there. One hooked in a half day trip for […]

Fishing Report for July 21, 2014

Dominick’s first salmon and fought it like a pro.  If he was ever in a youth tournament, he’d be my first pick.  There are fish jumping every where.  The biting is slower than we like but should pick up.  I’m still at a one fish per person per trip.
