Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas From Roaring Fork Guide Service

Nothing says "MERRY CHRISTMAS" better than a guided fishing trip. If you are looking for a fantastic gift for that special someone, look no further. Get on the horn and give us a call at 541-912-8899 or an email at roaringfork@aol.com. We are currently, solidly into our cherished Winter Chinook Salmon Season down on the Elk & Sixes Rivers near Port Orford. These fish are bulls. Heavy chrome-bright salmon just hours out of the salt provide amazing sport and memories that will last for years to come.

Right now we have availablity for exciting guided driftboat trips on the Elk & Sixes Rivers. These precious streams have been kicking out boxfulls of large, gorgeous late-run Chinook routinely following each rise in the rivers. Recent rains have made for great sustained fishing. If you have never dabbled in the fishery, you owe it to yourself to enjoy this very special experience. Book a trip now while 2014 prices still apply. The Fall-Winter Chinook fishing down here near Port Orford usually holds through December 31.

In November and December I am headquartered down south on the Elk & Sixes Rivers at Port Orford. We have high hopes for a great late fall season this year. Big chunker Chinook are the target prey and the driftboat provides our means of attack. With consistent fall rains from Mother Nature and abundant numbers from the fish gods, this season could be epic. If you've never dabbled in this fishery, you may want to consider booking a trip.

The Beauty & Bounty of Fall Fishing

The Beauty & Bounty of Fall Fishing

As we move toward November so do the Fall Salmon move upriver from the lower tidewaters to their natal tributaries. Brillant hues of yellow, orange and red adorn the river banks as anglers mine the waters for the platinum prize that swims below. Fishing tactics change as fishermen progress upriver. Tidewater trolling gradually gives way to plugs, spinners and carefully drifted baits and succullent eggs supended below floats. Persistent fly fishermen can find action as well, given the right conditions.
