The first steelhead arrive on the Chetco River in November & continue through March. Multiple-fish days are common on the Chetco & Rogue Rivers. Steelhead season runs through March.Wild Rivers Fishing

In late March, hard-fighting, great-tasting spring salmon arrive on the lower Rogue River near Gold Beach. Fishing is best in April & May. The spring king salmon, known as springers, are arguably the hardest fighting of all salmon.

The peak of the Salmon run on the smaller coastal Rivers are from October through December on the Chetco River, Sixes & Elk Rivers in Southern Oregon. All three Rivers are only a few miles apart. We will fish you on the best one of them that day. The Elk River is 50 miles long with more King Salmon per mile than any River in the state of Oregon, National Wild & Scenic River. The Sixes River is 50 miles long with all wild fish, both steelhead & salmon. The Chetco River is 60 miles long, home to the state's largest steelhead, National Wild & Scenic. On Thanksgiving Day 1997, a new Chetco River record was established when a 64 pound King Salmon was caught. The average size fish for all of these Rivers is 15 to 25 pounds, although some 50 pound fish are caught each year. On the Smith River in 1988 a King Salmon of 68 pounds was caught.

During the late summer & early fall months, our fishing tour targets the trophy kings in the Rogue Bay, Coquille Bay, Coos Bay & Chetco River estuaries. We also fish the upper section of the Klamath River in the early fall.

In late summer, from August through September, the Rogue Bay, Coos Bay & lower Coquille River often produce the best estuary king salmon on the Oregon Coast. All have healthy runs of wild salmon, & abundant hatchery fish.

During the peak season, fish-after-fish action is common. Many anglers leave with limits. The salmon in all of the Rivers run from 15 to 30 pounds, with much bigger fish common on the Coquille & Rogue.

In October, the action turns to the Chetco River, which are known to kick out several fish over 50 pounds each fall.

The entire Wild Rivers Fishing area is some of the best in the world .

Fishing Charters, Freshwater Fishing, Salt Water Fishing serving Medford, Oregon Area

In late October & some seasons as late as November the first rains of the year fall. These rains provide much needed flow into some coastal Rivers such as the Eel River. These increases in flow are what these late run “trophy” King Salmon have been waiting for. The flow increase signals to these fish that it is time to make there journey upstream to spawn. It is not uncommon to catch King Salmon this time of year in the thirty to forty pound range. These fish average a whopping twenty-five pounds.
