Guided Coastal Steelhead Trips

Coastal Steelhead

I start fishing the smaller coastal streams like the Chetco, Elk, Sixes, and South Fork Coquille starting in mid December. The peak months are January and February. These smaller rivers typically have, on average, a slightly larger Steelhead than the Rogue. They average 8 to 11 pounds, but it is common to hook a fish in the teens or even get a chance at a 20 pounder! Being so close to the ocean, these fish fight a lot harder, which can make landing them a challenge! Coastal rivers are very weather dependant and only fish well after a good amount of rain.
