Umpqua River Fishing Guides
Our guides fish, the South Umpqua River located near the town of Canyonville, 25 miles south of Roseburg and about 45 miles north of Grants Pass. Guides and guests love to fish the Umpqua because of its successful hatchery program and the large chrome steelhead the Umpqua tends to produce. Our guides fish the Umpqua River for winter steelhead January through March.
