Oregon Fishing



  January through March Tom guides anglers on  the rivers of Oregons Southern Coast.The Elk, Rogue and Chetco Rivers provide some of the most productive Trophy Steelhead Fishing in the Pacific Northwest. Steelhead in the 20 lb. class and up are caught here every winter.These rivers are best fished aboard our Custom Drift Boat working carefully through each fish holding Run, Hole, or Drift looking for that Trophy Steelhead- A.K.A. Silver Bullets!!
If you haven't taken a Drift Boat Trip for these most sought after fish you are missing a great adventure in some of natures finest scenery.When you set the hook on one of  these Line burning - Cartwheeling - Chrome Bright Steelhead You too will be hooked!!

  We use top quality Spinning Gear to Side drift with bait most often roe, (cured eggs from Salmon or Steelhead) or Ghost Shrimp pumped fresh from the Ocean Bays of Oregon. Pulling plugs. (Back Trolling small diving lures such as Hot Shots) is often a deadly tactic for Big Steelhead.

  The CHETCO RIVER is located 10 miles north of the Oregon-California border on U.S.101. At Brookings Oregon. This famous Trophy Steelhead River winds its way from the Kalmiopsis wilderness in the Coastal Mountain Range of Southern Oregon. Its blue green waters flow through Old Growth Douglas Fir Forested Canyons with the largest Myrtle tree groves in the world gracing its banks. The Chetco is an easier river to fish as its channel is made up of small cobble rock. (not many snag ups on rocks) being its a smaller river the Steelhead tend to be easier to locate and target with your offering of bait or lure.The CHETCO is a great river for Seasoned Veteran Steelheaders  or Begining Steelheaders.

The Rogue River enters the Pacific Ocean at Gold Beach, Oregon and is known world wide for its great Salmon and Steelhead Fishing.The Rogue is a large river that boasts Two Runs of Steelhead and also a Spring and Fall Runs of King Salmon. We fish for Steelhead on the Rogue when most of the other area rivers are flowing too low and clear for very productive Steelhead Fishing.

 The Elk River just north of the small town of Port Orford, Oregon is another small coastal river that boasts runs of Trophy Sized Steelhead.The drift we fish here is from the Elk River Hatchery to Iron Head a drift of about 10 miles starting in Fir Forests and winding slowly through the valley below.Many different types of holding water are present along this productive river.We go to the Elk River when other area rivers are running too high and muddy for best fishing.The prime window for this small river is just after a series of wet storms.


 Our Guide Boat in Oregon is a Custom Fish-Rite 18 ft. Drift Boat set up to comfortably fish up to three anglers,it also has a propane heater for those chilly early mornings.
