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.

Rogue River Fish Report June 6, 2011

Hello fellow fishing enthusiasts, and thank you for logging in for the Rogue River fish report. There for awhile we weren’t seeing much action, but salmon fishing has picked up, and most days I’m able to land 3 salmon. The lower Rogue is giving up about 20 fish per day.

On average, most boats are catching between 2-3 fish. These numbers of catches make for good day’s fishing if you have one or two people on board. So don’t hesitate to give me a call at 541-425-1515, to book your trip. You don’t want to miss out.

Red Hot Alert!

March 24, 2011 | By

Today was the  first day out springer fishing in my boat. The water has been so high and muddy for the last two and a half weeks, it would have been very unproductive to fish in those conditions. We had a fantastic day of fishing with minor set backs due to our wonderful methanol gasoline in my outboards. Fortunately, I was always fairly close to the anchor and was able to get back without too much trouble, but I’ve got that problem fixed. The boat on the outside of me had a take-down at 7:45 am, but unfortunately missed it. At 8 o’clock, my center rod slams down with a 22-pound hatchery. At 8:25, my outside rod goes down with a 27-pound wild fish. At 8:45, the outside boat missed another fish. At 9:25, I caught a 17 pound hatchery. At 11:00, I caught a 20 pound hatchery. At 11:30, my center rod goes down and the outside rod goes down with a 27 pound hatchery. At the same time, the boat on the outside of me  had his outside rod go down. We had three bites at one time between two boats.

Great catch! March 24, 2011

Then at 1:00 in the afternoon, my inside rod went down, went screaming across my other two lines and came off. All together I missed 2 and landed 5. What a way to start the season out! At 2:00, the outside boat  went to pick up his outside rod to bring it in for the day, and it got hit but he jerked the rod and lost the fish. Some days just don’t go as planned. Between the 2 boats anchored down in tidal water, there was 11 bites. The boats above us 2, landed one Chinook, lost 2 and landed 3 steelhead.  The bank fisherman up on the corner, landed 6 Chinook. We had fish rolling behind us out in the center of the channel and everywhere today.

And it’s just the beginning, this will last from now through June. So save up your nickels and give me a call at 541-425-1515, because it doesn’t get any better than this. My clients were limited out by 11:00. Unfortunately I went home empty handed, but the hardest fish for a guide to catch is one for himself! I believe the father just wanted to bless us and gave us a great day.

Thanks for checking in,

Fishing Report for Sunday, October 17, 2010

October 17, 2010 | By

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
