River Report

Chetco River fishing

Well, the last few weeks on the Chetco river has been one for the books!! We have caught Steelhead in all conditions from brown water to clear water. I have to tip my hat to the brood stock program up here in Oregon. They have an amazing program!! Being apart of the program and able to chose the genetics has been an amazing experience. The weather has been sunny and warm, what more can a steelhead fisherman ask for??

Most fish have been coming on the bead. The boat pressure has been busy during the green water days. Most of the boaters were happy to be on the river chasing steelhead which is nice! There is always a few knuckle heads out on the river trying to go against the grain, which is unfortunate. Its always nice when everyone has bent rods and big smiles!!

lets pray to the weather gods to keep bring us rain in southern Oregon and northern California. We all know we need it! I don’t know where I will be in the next week but stay tuned for the next fishing report.

Keep It Reel…

2022 steelhead

Fishing has been off to a great start for 2021 and the new 2022 winter steelhead season. Big tides brought some good pushes off fresh fish up many of the north coast and southern Oregon river. With all the low snow melting with these next few rains, we will be off the river for a handful of days.

This year has started off 100 times better than last year! All though last year had low numbers but big size, this year seems to be high in early numbers of steelhead. Hopefully we keep getting the much need precipitation toppled with good numbers of fish. KEEP IT REEL and see you on the water…

new steelhead season

A new steelhead season has begun! There are early signs of fish entering many of the Northern California and Southern Oregon rivers. Cold weather systems from the north have brought rain on the coast and snow in the mountains. This much need precipitation is a gift from the weather gods for all steelhead junkies on the west coast.

We are taking reservations for January through March. There still are some weekends available! During the season sending a text or calling can reach me faster then social media or an email. Hope to hear from you soon!!

Fishing Report September 29th, 2021

The past few weeks on the Klamath river has been good fishing. Recently it has started to slow down due to the mouth sanding in. Today I had the day off but heard the mouth has blown open!! I will be back on the water tomorrow so stay tuned.

We will continue to fish the lower Klamath river out of the power boat till the fishing slows down to a grind. We will also be pursuing salmon and steelhead out of the drift boat on the Trinity and upper Klamath rivers. Don’t count out and fishing adventures on the ocean! We will be offering fishing trips for rockfish and Dungeness crab, and  possibly albacore tuna.
