Southern Oregon is famous for its fishing; it has been for years. Today, people travel from all over the world to fish our region’s rivers.

Escaping to the wilderness is easy to do and with so many rivers here, it may be hard to choose where to cast a line. Local outfitters work the Umpqua, Klamath and Williamson rivers and, of course, the famous Rogue River. They angle for Coho, Chinook and steelhead.

“It’s a lifestyle thing,” says guide Rich Wilkinson. “Fishing makes you feel like you’re part of the river. Catching these fish is super exciting. It’s a fight to reel these things in but once you catch one, you want to catch another one. It’s very addictive. It’s also great eating. They taste good.”

Choose a guide and get started on your great escape.
