I'm heading up to Gold Beach in about 10 days - leave a few fish for me! Try Rogue Outdoors right on the highway before you cross the river - they have everything you need (except I hear anchovies are hard to come by up there right now). Good luck!

I wish you the best of luck, but unfortunetly the fish just are not there. If you go out with someone who knows the river I.E. a local guide you might scrape a fish or two in a day. My mom lives in gold beach and her boyfriend has been giving me the updates. I am supposed to go up on the 17th to do some fishing, hopefully they'll be in by then ???
Fish hard and good luck.

Good Luck. Iwas there July 17-24. Zero Salmon. I did take my boat out and did some good bottom fishing. Five Star Charters keeps an updated fishing report on their site. I have been fishing the Rouge for a long time. All my family on my mom's side lives up there so I try to go at least once a year. This year is a late run. Last year was amazing. I hooked 6 fish landed 2 just under 30 and my cousin landed 55lb plus. Stop in at the Rouge Outdoor Store and Jim will set you up. Good Luck and let us know how you did. For your info, bottom fishing limit was reduced from 10 to 5. Lings are still 2, they must be over 24 inches. You must troll with a Rouge River rig.
