Rogue River Fishing Report – Sunday May 13, 2012

May 13, 2012 | By

I’m fishing a new spot for this year.  The water is finally starting to clear and opening up more spots . I came in and looked that the bottom and found a small grove in it . It paid off 9 bites by noon 5 times and 7 on another boat and we where the only one blessed.  Most of the boat left and new ones came in, and this evening there were 5 of us that got fish.  I landed 5 out 9 bites . I’m in 4 ft. of water and today the fish like that top secret color green on green.  The water is clearing 3# viz.temp 57.5  and the fish are bitey.

Sorry for missing a few weeks.  We had problems with our feed but hopefully all has been ironed out now.  We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.

The fishing has been great!  We landed a total of seventeen salmon last week and look forward to some more this week.

Rogue River Fish Report for June 12, 2011

June 12, 2011 | By

Hello fishing enthusiasts, and thank you for logging in for this week’s fish report. We are still picking up a couple of fish per day in key locations. The water is still a little high for some of my favorite spots to fish, but there are good places available, you just have to find them. We are not getting full limits, but we’re still finding a couple of nice ones everyday.

We have installed a new GoPro Hero helmet camera on the boat, so we can take a live video of your catch. We’ve tested it out and found that the video is very crisp and clear, and will make a great addition to your fishing memories. We’re working on editing this 30 pound catch video, and hope to have it on the website within a week.

Fishing Report for Sunday, April 3, 2011

Thanks for logging in for this week’s fish report. Sorry it’s late, but I gave my phone swimming lessons and I’ve lost all of your numbers. I’m getting a replacement tomorrow, so please call me at 541-425-1515 and leave me a message so I can get you re-entered into the memory bank. Then I can keep you updated on the hot bites — And these last few trips have been excellent!

So far this springer season, I’ve gone on 7 trips,  had 29 bites and landed 19. Only three were wild, and all the rest were hatchery.  This season is starting out to be totally fantastic. The water is still extremely high but beautiful in color. I’ve been fishing a lot deeper than normal in 5, 6 and 8 ounce water where the current is running 3.5 to 4 miles an hour.

I hope you enjoy the photos below, and would love to put your pictures on the website as well, with stories of catching lots of fish. So please give us a call at 541-425-1515, and let us make some memories for you. My cell phone will be up and working tomorrow.

Fishing Report for Sunday, January 23, 2010

Thanks for checking in for this week’s fish report. The water is still high and colored. As a result, the fish are not following their normal traveling patterns in the water and are scattered all around. Even so, we’re still able to hook 1-2 fish a day in these high conditions, but the fishing should improve this weekend as the water continues to drop. I hope to have a great report for you this weekend.

Thank you for checking in. This year is starting out with a bang and the fishing is absolutely fantastic! Wednesday I had a single client, we hooked five and landed three. We had a short day on Thursday and hooked three, landed one. I’ve had friends fishing he same location full days on Friday and Saturday and each day they hooked 5-6 fish.

So don’t hesitate, give us a call at 541-425-151515 and let us help make memories for you.

Nice catch! A 10 pound Steelhead caught 1-5-2011.



Great pair of 8-9 pounders caught the same day!

10 pounder, 8-9 will be coming. Winter Steelhead.

Hello fishermen, the water is perfect and the steelhead are biting. Several of my friends said that last week they did extremely well, with about 30% of catches being hatchery fish. So now is the time to start planning your January trips. We’ve got plenty of water and everything looks picture perfect. Let’s start the new year with fish on! To book your next trip, call me at 541-425-1515.

Allen Rosenberry, of Healdsberg, CA recently sent us this picture of a friend holding a 57 pound salmon caught on Thanksgiving day on the Smith River. Thanks Allen, we’re always happy to share great photos like this one.

Fishing Report for Sunday, October 17, 2010

Hi, and thanks for logging in for this week’s fish report. This week on the Rogue River the fishing has been extremely slow, but the Coquille has been extremely good to me. My Wednesday trip on the Coquille, I had three clients and three fish. The big one was 37 pounds.

The big fish for the week - 37 pounds

On Thursday, I had two gentlemen and we caught three fish. I limited one out with a nice 25 and an 18 pounder.

Friday, I had three gentlemen, we had 3 fish on and our big one for the day was 25 pounds  Both guys went home with fish. Today I had 3 gentlemen and three fish again. Unfortunately one of the three fish caught was a wild silver and we only had to throw it back.

Fishing the Coquilee is a nice peaceful,enjoyable day and it is very entertaining watching hundreds of fish jump all day long. Talking with the locals, they say this fishing will continue until we get an inch or two of rain at one time. Then the salmon will move upstream to the higher waters. There is not rain in the forecast to speak of this week, and I’ve still got plenty of availability. So give me a call at 541-425-1515 and see if we can make a memory for you.

Thank you,

Your guide

Fishing Report for Sunday, July 25, 2010

Thank you for logging in for this week’s report.  The fishing was extremely good; a lot of the boats had 2 and 3 fish per boat. The last few days the bite has slowed down to 10-12 fish a day. On Thursday, I had a couple out and got them a 35 pound-er. I had the same couple for a Friday trip and we picked up a 31 pound-er. Lately, the fish moved out of the bay and out to the ocean. Saturday and today, the numbers have been extremely low with only between 15 and 20  caught both days.

There were a lot of us guides that were skunked today that normally don’t get skunked. But normally we make up for it in a  fury the next day, so don’t hesitate because those fish will be back in later today or tomorrow . We’re ready for them and if you want to make sure you bring home some fish, it’s a good idea to spend at least two days fishing as you normally never get skunked two days in a row. ODF&W says we’re going to have a good run of 5-year old fish and my last two catches were 31 & 35 lbs, so I definitely believe them.

They should be showing up any day and I still have openings from Mid August to September, right in the early beginnings of a good bite. The month of July can be spotty, so this is nothing unusual.The loner the season lasts, the bigger the fish get and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Doug McGrath doesn’t catch my record fish this year since he’s one of the luckiest guys I’ve ever fished. He fished last October and if he fishes again this Fall, he’s liable to put a 50-lber . The current boat record for largest fish is 48-lbs, set by an 11 year old. You just might be the next record holder, so call Memory Makers Rogue River Guide Service at  541-425-1515 and let us put a trip together for you.
