As we slide into the New Year, our fishing focus transitions as well. Time to say Good Bye to our 2016 Salmon season and embrace the on-coming 2017 Winter Steelhead season. My guests yesterday who were out visiting from Texas got a taste for some winter chrome as we stumbled into several fresh winter-runs
Large Winter Steelhead are often available in the Month of March. Once in a while everything comes together with dropping river levels after a freshet and even some sunshine can all cumulate into magical March memories. Meanwhile, such rivers as the Umpqua and the Columbia are among the large systems already producing the coveted Spring Chinook salmon.
Now that we have transitioned from Salmon fishing into our Winter Steelhead season, we are enjoying consistent steelhead action on our southcoast streams whenever river levels and conditions cooperate
As we sadly say goodbye to our Fall-Winter Chinook Season, we happlily transition into our Winter Steelhead Season. Roaring Fork Guide Service wishes you All the Best in 2015!
Andy got into a couple pretty hot Siletz Steelhead on our trip this past week. Neither fish he hooked wanted to have any part of the net. As the picture indicates. Andy had other ideas.
Reports of decent steelhead fishing surfaced up and down the coast in early January. As the early rains of 2013 diminished and gave way to a short cold snap, the bite layed down a tad. Recent rains over the last few days should now provide a welcome jump start and packs of new fish should be pushing through soon.
Our recent trips are producing some great catches of Winter Chrome. Trips to the Siuslaw and the S.F. Coquille all produced nice fish.
