Oregon Coast Steelhead

The Big Game Hunt of Steelheading
  • A huge steelhead from the southern Oregon Coast
    Trophy Steelhead You can catch the fish of a lifetime any day on the southern Oregon Coast. Our clients have landed numerous steelhead in the twenty pound range.
  • Rafting a river on the southern Oregon Coast
    Raft Trips Many of our southern Oregon Coast trips are raft trips. We also do walk/wade trips on all of the fisheries and jet boat trips on the Lower Rogue.
  • A large steelhead from the southern Oregon Coast
    We fish all techniques While many fish fall prey to big spey flies like the one pictured here, some coastal steelies really want a dead-drifted glo bug. We do what it takes to catch these magnificent fish.
  • Jon Hazlett with a huge steelhead from the southern Oregon Coast
    Ocean-fresh steelhead Most of the fish we catch in this area are within 10 miles of the ocean. These are hard-fighting chromers!
  • The Lower Rogue River in southern Oregon
    The Lower Rogue The marquee destination in this area is the Lower Rogue River. Thousands of steelhead migrate up this river every season.
  • Sight fishing for steelhead on a small southern Oregon Coast stream
    Sight Fishing You can actually sight-fish for steelhead on some of the smaller southern Oregon Coastal streams.
Quick Links:

Steelheading is a passion for us. There is no other place we would rather be than winter Steelheading on the Southern Oregon Coast. Why? As our coastal rivers rise and fall with winter rains, big, wild steelhead push into emerald waters, seeking refuge in glassy tail-outs and choppy riffles. Opportunities for the steelhead of a lifetime come numerous times each season.

January, February and March are the best months to connect with one of these powerful fish. Our primary destinations include the lower Rogue and Chetco Rivers, and we have many great secondary options nearby.

Sample Itinerary
Meeting Time & Place: We typically meet our clients at their hotel at 7:30am.
Vehicle Considerations: Typically we have our clients ride with us in our own vehicles. However, be prepared to follow us in your own vehicle. We may need to use your vehicle to help run our shuttle.
Wading difficulty: We do all kinds of trips on the rivers of the southern Oregon coast. We do walk/wade trips, jet boat trips, and float trips using our drift boats and rafts. All trips involve wading. The wading on these rivers is mostly over cobble bottoms and not overly challenging.

Length of the Day: Most full days conclude around 5:30pm. Half days end around 1:00pm.
