Cast the day away with us while we fish the best fishing holes on the Rogue. We provide all fishing equipment needed.


The Rogue River is the perfect place to SUP on the river. Join us for a half day trip on an easy section of the Rogue. Our experienced guides will teach you proper stand up paddling technique on shore and then head out on the river for floating through calm pools and small riffles.
