The Rogue river is accessible from the banks but has limited access. The most effective fishing is done with boat transportation. There are varied types of water and terrain that all levels of anglers can enjoy. Anywhere from easily stepped down gravel runs to tricky ledges and boulder gardens. The river is a small and intimate to very large, wide, high flow, depending on what section of river you fish. This makes the river conducive to both single-hand and two-hand rods.
The weather in Oregon is often unpredictable but fairly mild and stable. Southern Oregon sits in a "banana belt" of temperate weather. In the heart of fall fishing, one can find themselves fishing in a t-shirt. In winter months, expect rain and at times snowfall.
Rates range from: $350-$2300
Humble Heron offers additional activities. James is an accomplished artist and offers trips that include instruction in oil and acrylic painting. There is also the option to have your trip captured in paint as James will follow the other guide and paint your experience fishing on the Rogue. Kid-oriented trips are also offered and are a great way to get the whole family involved and out in nature! Please inquire about these specialty trips.
Humble Heron is equal opportunity and offers services for folks with limited mobility. We are thrilled to get just about anyone out on the water to see this beautiful river.
Dogs are welcomed as long as we aren’t chasing them down every stop.
Parts of the Rogue are set in true wilderness and often cell phone reception is not possible. Sit back, you’re on river time!
Airport shuttles are possible. Check Medford International Airport for available services. We are happy to help you with this.
