Fishing has been red hot on the Coquille River at Bandon. The season is extending a month later than usual. We still have loads of big Kings in the river and Silvers, which were here in spades last year this time, just beginning to show up. This means we’re expecting the great fishing to continue into next month!
Call (541) 425-1515 to reserve a spot and not miss out on what looks to be an exceptional fall fishing run that could extend all the way into November.

The Coquille was a blast today.  We were blessed with 6 beautiful adults, 2 Silvers and 4 Chinook.  They ranged from 12 lb to 30 lb.  This fishery will last until the heavy rains come, which may not come until the middle of November.  I was off the water by 12:30pm today.  I pray God will continue to bless me like he did today in the photos that follow:



Yesterday fish from 14lb to 22lb on the Coquille.

Today was my first day on the Coquille.  We lost one at the boat and had 6 or 7 pull downs that didn’t stay on.  All in all it was a good day with lots of fun.  I have openings 21st on.

Pete drove over last night for his annual fish trip. We were blessed and able to take him out by noon.  Not bad for an 80 year old gentleman.  He FOUGHT those fish like a pro.  It is fun to see the joy on the faces, weather they are 80 or 8.  That what makes my job so great!  Hope to see you soon. Your Guide, John.

Done and off the water by 11:30am with 5 out of 6 here on the Umpqua today.  It was another blessed day.  Had my first double today.  When I put in it was foggy hadn’t gone 150 yards and pow a rod goes down I started reeling my rod in and about 20 feet from the back of the boat a fish came up and grabbed mine like a bass would do.  It was a lot of fun.  Wish you were here to share it.  Have openings Friday and most of next week.  Hope you are having a good day.  John

Aug2314AAug2314CThe Umpqua is loaded with big fish Thur I was 2 out of 10 bites, had 2 leaders brake and in 12 years of guiding I have never had that happen.  Today I had my friend call to say he was 2 out 6 with 32lb and 41lb.  I had really great people with me Thur but they had never fought big fish like these before and I was running beaded line.  I went back to 30lb mono line and am thinking about in line bungee cord .  There was close to a 100 fish today according to my friends.  Have opening and would love to see your eyes light up with one of these Monsters so give me a call.
