We’ll also clean, fillet, and bag your catch. All you need to bring is your Oregon fishing license. Also be sure to wear appropriate clothing for the weather/temperatures: layers may be best.

The weather and river levels play a huge role on where we decide to fish for Winter Steelhead here in Southern Oregon. Be ready for an Oregon fishing guided adventure! We traditionally use yarn ball, beads, and steelhead roe if needed. We recommend using 7 to 8 weight fly rods with floating line. Again, fly fishermen/women should bring own rod and reel.

If you are interested in harvesting your catch, we’ll fish the Coquille, Rogue, Elk, or Sixes per the rivers’ conditions. If you want to catch-and-release, our options are wide open!
