The first spring salmon should be entering the Rogue River within the next couple of weeks. By late March there are usually enough fish in the river to make it worth a concerted effort. I will begin guiding for springers the first week of April and continue into May. How long into May depends on numbers of fish and river conditions. With all the rain and snow pack this year, there should be plenty of water and good conditions through the season. After springers, I head to Alaska to guide a few weeks during the peak of the Nushagak River chinook run and then back to Gold Beach for bay fishing by late July-September. Last summer was very good fishing most weeks in the bay and I’m expecting another good year in 2017. Call if you’d like to join me on the Rogue or even in Alaska (541-425-1318).
