Rogue River Salmon Fishing

Gold Beach Oregon

Early July is the startup of fishing for our Rogue River King Salmon. In August 2002 a 66-pounder was landed while trolling in the river estuary area at Gold Beach Oregon. This was the largest King Salmon landed in Oregon in nearly 20 years. This catch of a 66-pounder was soon eclipsed by a true Rogue River monster size Oregon King Salmon.

World Record Oregon King Salmon Caught Fly fishing on the Rogue River at Gold Beach Oregon

While Fly Fishing Grant Martinsen landed a 71.5-pound, Oregon King Salmon fishing and World Salmon Fly Fishing record King Salmon at Clay Banks on the Lower Rogue near Gold Beach, on October 22nd, 2002

Nearly all of the Rogue River Salmon fishing is for wild salmon stocks, very few hatchery Fall King Salmon are found in the Rogue River. Salmon fishing is good here until mid to late October. The Lower Rogue River near Gold Beach is the best bet for salmon fishing until water temperatures start to cool in September. Cooler weather in September brings water temperatures down encouraging stacked up King Salmon to begin to move up-river toward their spawning grounds up to 150 miles away.

Coquille River Salmon Fishing

September 1st will begin the Coquille River King Salmon fishing season with the returning of 30,000 Fall King Salmon averaging 25 to 50 pounds. All of these fish are caught in tidewater areas of the Lower Coquille River near Bandon. These King Salmon are big and mean with very good quality. Coquille River King Salmon fishing remains good September through October.

Chetco River Fall King Salmon Fishing

October 1st will begin the Chetco River Fall King Salmon fishing season returning 20,000 Fall King Salmon averaging 25 to 50 pounds. Hundreds of  Fall King Salmon will stack up awaiting autumn rains to raise this rivers flow to allow upstream passage. The Chetco River which is only 50 miles long raises and drops quickly. Trolling for King Salmon is also good in the Chetco River estuary in October. King Salmon fishing remains good from October to January.

Elk River Fall King Salmon Fishing

October through January.

The Elk River is 50 miles long with 10 miles of the best King Salmon fishing water for late season Fall King Salmon to be found anywhere. The Elk River is a wonderful river for Oregon salmon fishing, a small stream with more King salmon holding water and holes per mile than any other stream in Oregon.

The Elk River King Salmon will out fight all other King Salmon hands down. More fish are lost here on the Elk River than are landed due to water conditions and the attitude of these Elk River King Salmon.  On the average these big Fall King Salmon will win their battle 50% of the time as they are big, mean and aggressive, all qualities we want in great Oregon Salmon fishing trips.
