Rogue River Fishing Conditions
Rogue River Fishing Conditions have been hit or miss.  We've had some days where it's good and some days where nobody is catching anything.  Every day is different - but every day brings new into the bay.  Though the winds haven't helped much, we're still able to pull in some great fish!!
But when the winds die down...it has been FUN FUN FUN!!  A couple 30+ lb'ers and several fish between 20 and 30 lbs.  Pictures from the last week of some of the fish YOU COULD BE CATCHING are posted below!!
Every day is different here, but there are always fish in the bay.  We're catching them on anchovies and/or sardines, as well as straight spinners - green and gold (or any combination there of seems to be the choice of all successful fishing).  Like most places:  ANY color is good as long as it's green! (or gold...).    This is a river where experience counts - most people aren't going to come here and be successful on their own without learning when and where these fish tend to congregate, and the best techniques to target them:  if you're thinking about coming down on your own - hire a guide for a day to show you how to be successful - you'll be MUCH happier in the long run.
If you're thinking of booking a trip with us - be sure and call SOON - dates are filling up VERY quickly and if you want a chance at some of the best tasting and best fighting Kings ANYWHERE - now is the time!!  These fish will give you everything you want in a fight - that much I can assure you.

Rogue River Fishing Conditions:
After a very slow start to the spring Chinook salmon season, Rogue River Fishing Conditions seem to finally be picking up a little.  Over the last week, a lot more fish are being caught  – both hatchery and wild fish.  Fishing on the lower Rogue is entirely anchored up fishing from a boat or plunking from the shore using anchovies or straight spinners.  Just like everywhere else – any color is good as long as it’s green.  Gold or brass also seem to be performing well. It’s still a little slow at times, but fish are being caught.  For more info, check out the Oregon Fish & Wildlife report.  http://www.dfw.state.or.us/rr/southwest/

Bookings:
We still have quite a few openings for this year, but they’re starting to fill up.  So if you’re thinking about booking a trip or have been waiting for fish – now would be a great time!  Just give me a call at 541-441-0559, or send me an email at jtaylor@fishchinook.com and we’ll see if we can’t get you an experience that will last a lifetime!

New Boat:
I purchased a “new-to-me” boat recently.  It’s a 22′ Jerry’s Marine flat bottom.  I’m getting it ready to take out very soon (making sure the seats are comfortable and the boat is ready to perform well while we catch big lunkers   It’s a rear tiller 200 Yamaha boat and this will allow a lot more action in the fall when we’re side drifting for fall Chinooks and Cohos, and even more so when we’re going after winter/spring Steelhead. We are going to catch so many fish on board this boat, I’m almost giddy

Wild Fish:
We hooked a fighting 20# king yesterday after about a 15 minute struggle to get to him to come to the boat!  Just like last year - these fish continue to impress!
 
See ya on the river!

Went out early with 2 riders.  Had a total of 4 take-downs - 3 on spinner bait and 1 on a straight spinner.  But they were fighters today and we only got to net 1 - about a 20 lb wild fish which was immediately released.  Boat next to us netted 2 keepers in the 15 lb range.  Another boat netted a 14 lb'er.  Those 3 fish were all caught on straight bait.
All in all - for spring fishing - it was a lot of fun!  Action going on pretty much daily right now - not a ton of action, but several boats are seeing at least a little action.
Come on down and we'll see if we can't find that fish with YOUR name on it!  Bookings are available!

Springer Chinooks are here!!  We are catching the early springers and with this rain, I expect the fishing to improve even more!  We've still got open dates, but call soon to book your dates so we can find those fish with YOUR name on them :)
