Our boat is covered and heated during winter/spring fishing. All Equipment and bait is provided on your Fishing or Crabbing Trips.
We fish different rivers at alternate times of the year depending on salmon runs and fishing conditions. See below:
Fishing on the Rogue River
Winter Steelhead fishing on the Rogue River: January, February and March, we fish from our 22ft Jet boat mostly with plugs and anchored in travel paths. Plenty of fresh Winter Steelhead and un-crowded conditions make a for a great day fishing. Fish in comfort under a canvas top with heater when needed.
Spring Chinook fishing on the Rogue River: April, May and thru mid June, the Rogue River is famous for its Spring Chinook runs. The best eating King Salmon anywhere are found on the Lower Rogue River. We are anchored fishing travel lanes and tides. Spring Chinook run 15 to 35 pounds with an occasional monster 40 to 45 pounds. Mint bright just out of saltwater they are very exciting and great fighters. We can take up to four anglers per trip. It is not always important to get up and out fishing in the wee hours of the morning. Many of our trips begin around 10am and we fish into the evening but not too late.
Rogue River Fall Chinook fishery: July thru mid August, we fish primarily in the tidal area trolling for Kings that move in and out with the tide. We can take four fishermen comfortably in our 22ft Jet Boat with some of the nicest seating on the water. Restrooms are available at local docks. This is a very relaxed fishery that virtually anyone can do no matter the experience level. Your guide Tim Schlund is patient and great to spend the day with. Fishing is productive and the Kings are top quality running 10 to 50 pounds, but averaging about 23 pounds most years. We run an 8 hour trip that gives you two tides an incoming and a outgoing (our Kings bite best on moving tides).
Coquille River Fishing at Bandon
Coquille River Striped Bass: Though these aggressive fighters are here year round, the big ones start arriving in February and the numbers grow into July when they head back out to the ocean. Big Striper run around 30 inches and when they attack a top water bait it makes your heart skip a beat. The best fishing is usually early mornings before sunrise and late evenings starting before dusk and into early morning hours.
Coquille River Fall Chinook fishery: August thru the end of October we fish the Coquille River located just north of Bandon near the famous Bandon Dunes Golf Course. We fish the tidal influenced water trolling in our 22ft powerboat for nice Fall Salmon and Coho or Silvers.
Crabbing Trips are a great family adventure. We will crab in the bay which offers us access to lots of Dungeness Crab without the worry of ocean waves. Trips are for two hours and we can take up to five family members, this is a good trip for all ages.
Coos Bay Oregon Fishing
Coos Bay Fall Chinook: We fish the tidal waters to the rivers of Coos Bay July through November for Kings and Coho or Silvers. A pleasant fishery with room to fish, lots of fish caught here and they provide the fight of a lifetime.
Elk River Fishing at Port Orford
The Elk River is located just north of Port Orford and is one of the most exciting rivers to fish for late season Kings. Kings here are big and mean on the Elk. The Elk River is a joy to fish and we only use drift boats with no motors on the Elk above Hwy 101. The Elk is a very fast clearing stream after a rain. November and December are prime King months while February and March are best for Winter Steelhead. Weekends can be crowded during peak season but week days are not too bad.
Sixes River at Port Orford
The Sixes River is just a mile or two north of the Elk but has a totally different character than the rowdy Elk River. The Sixes River is more relaxed and the river is more placid and carry’s a darker water color and is slower to clear than the Elk River. As with the Elk the Sixes is all drift boat fishery. November and December are prime King months while February and March are best for Winter Steelhead. Weekends can be crowded during peak season but week days are not too bad.
