“I am certainly not a fisherman, but it’s not necessary when you are with Fishing Guide Ron Smith from Gold Beach, Oregon. We spent an unforgettable day fishing on the Rogue River. His years of experience as a fishing guide certainly made it worth while for me, as I returned home with a big salmon and memories on the river that will last forever!

We also had the fun of reeling the salmon in, then holding it up for
photographs and video taken by the Jet Boat passengers that were passing by at just the right time! My day on the Rogue River with successful fishing guide Ron Smith will be a long lasting experience!”

M.V., Oregon
