Fishing the Rogue River

The Rogue River is an amazing sport fishery for salmon and steelhead, having over 215 miles of fishable water. The removal of dams in the last three years has created a free flowing river from the hatchery at Lost Creek Lake to the Pacific Ocean.

At Morrison’s Lodge we primarily focus on fishing the middle Rogue near Grants Pass, Oregon. The Lodge opened to anglers in the pursuit of the Rogue River steelhead in 1946 and for the last sixty four years anglers have made Morrison’s a fall fishing tradition. Paul “Pablo” Blakely has been guiding for Morrison’s for thirty years, and he believes that the Rogue is one of the most consistent steelhead fisheries in the west. “The Rogue can’t be beat in October for good weather and reliable steelhead migrations year after year,” states Pablo.

Our guides were both awesome; they worked real hard to get us into fish even though the fishing was tough. Thank you for a great vacation! We will come again! Andy & Jeanine, AZ

Every day you spend fishing on the Rogue presents incredible scenic beauty, abundance of wildlife and a chance of chasing the wily Rogue River salmon or steelhead.
