Rogue River Salmon and Steelhead Fishing
The Rogue River "Twitch" means steelhead fishing with a wet fly! Add that to Chinook or Coho Salmon and you may get a soar arm. From its origin in the High Cascades near Crater Lake, the Rogue River carves its way through Oregon's rugged coastal Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. The Rogue River is a national "Wild and Scenic River".MORE ON ROGUE RIVER FISHING >>

Trout Fishing the McKenzie River
The incredible lure of dry fly fishing for Rainbow Trout! Bubbling from beneath the lava beds in Oregon the McKenzie River originates high in the Cascade mountains and travels 85 miles through towering old-growth forests to its confluence with the Willamette. It's cold crystal clear water drops steeply at first, then flattens as it nears Eugene Oregon in the valley below. MORE ON THE MC KENZIE RIVER TROUT FISHING>>

"This is as good as it gets. The food was excellent and your company was great. Meandering down the Rogue River and catching Oregon steelhead such as this was a real thrill."
