Salmon Fishing Rogue River

The Legendary Rogue River is where the action unfolds for Chinook Salmon fishing with Roe Outfitters. Made famous by well known adventurer and author Zane Grey, the Rogue River inspired the writer to build a cabin along its banks where he visited often.
Now it is your turn to enjoy the mystery, beauty and wildness of this river from the front of your guides drift boat. So sit back, enjoy the scenery, listen to your guides instruction and catch some fish.

Spring Salmon
May – July 30
Spring salmon or “springers” are considered by most to be the finest tablefare of the of the Rogue River Salmon runs. These spring fish average 15 to 25 pounds.

Fall Salmon
August – September

The days are long and warm. Fall salmon tend to be more aggressive than their spring cousins and bigger. Fall salmon average 20 to 35 pounds with a few reaching that 50 pound mark. The biggest risk of fishing the fall salmon run is allowing the warm sun to lure you into falling asleep with your rod in your hand.

Coho Salmon
November – December

Also know as silvers these 6 – 14 pound salmonids arrive in the Rogue River in late fall. Casting spinners, wobbling spoons, medium size diving plugs and even flies will take these fish consistently.
