Rogue River Guide Service
Hughson's Guide Service is located in Gold Beach Oregon on the famous Lower Rogue River. A destination for salmon fishing enthusiasts from all over the world.
Rogue River Spring Chinook SalmonThe Rogue River is one of the best Spring Chinook Salmon fishing rivers in the world. We not only have great runs of Spring Chinook Salmon but our Spring Chinook Salmon are caught only hours out of the ocean so they are the best eating Spring Chinook Salmon to be found.
The Spring Chinook Salmon averages about 20# with a Spring Chinook to 40# every year. We will use our 24' custom built power boat to access the Lower 37 miles of the Lower Rogue River fishing from an anchored boat on inside corners to intercept fast move Spring Chinook. Best months for Spring Chinook on the Lower Rogue River is April - May - June. We will begin fishing Spring Chinook in late March depending on river temperature and river flow.
Rogue River Fall Chinook Salmon
Gold Beach Oregon is the home to Rogue River Fall Chinook Salmon fishing. Thousands of early Fall Chinook Salmon will enter the 3 mile long Rogue River estuary starting in early July and peaking in mid September. Rogue River Fall Chinook run large and very fresh from the sea. 23# to 30# Fall Chinook are most common here on the Lower Rogue River, although in recent years there have been Rogue River Fall Chinook of 66# and one that broke the World Record for Fly Fishing at 71.5# in 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.
