Rogue River

Rogue River Fishing

“The Rogue River in southwestern Oregon in the United States flows about 215 miles (346 km) in a generally westward direction from the Cascade Range to the Pacific Ocean. Known for its salmon runs, whitewater rafting, and rugged scenery, it was one of the original eight rivers named in the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968.

Beginning near Crater Lake, which occupies the caldera left by the explosive volcanic eruption of Mount Mazama, the river flows through the geologically young High Cascades and the older Western Cascades, another volcanic province.

Further west, the river passes through multiple exotic terrains of the more ancient Klamath Mountains.” When the Rogue River ends its journey it meets the Pacific Ocean at Gold Beach. Gold Beach, OR provides the last Rogue River fishing options when the sport turns to Oregon Coast fishing charters and all that the Pacific has to offer.
