The Osprey’s Catch is your ticket to the stunning waters of The Rogue River. Captain Yancey will be your guide, bringing aboard years of experience. He is certified in Captains License, Whitewater Guiding, Wilderness Medicine, Swiftwater Rescue, and Food Handling.

The Rogue River is renowned for its scenic beauty, rich biodiversity, and recreational opportunities. It passes through diverse landscapes, including deep canyons, lush forests, and rolling hills, offering breathtaking views along its course. The river is surrounded by the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, which further enhances its natural splendor.

The river is renowned for its Salmon and Steelhead fisheries. It is home to several fish species, including Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead, and Rainbow Trout. Anglers flock to the Rogue River to enjoy world-class fishing experiences, particularly during the Salmon and Steelhead runs.

Kids are absolutely welcome! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available, otherwise, you should bring your own. Your vessel for the day is a 17’ Willies driftboat with space for 2 passengers. It has everything you need for a productive day on the water. Additional boats may be scheduled in increments of 2 people per boat for larger bookings. Advance arrangements will be required. Your captain will provide rods, reels, along with lures. Bait is included, along with fly rods and flies.

Before coming aboard, you will be required to buy a local fishing license and tags for everyone in your group. This information is available online. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

Don’t leave home without sunglasses, a hat, sunblock (non-spray), and bottled water. Dress for the weather, with layers, fleece, jackets, and shells, waterproof boots, and wool socks.

Come join The Osprey’s Catch on the water and make memories that will last a lifetime!
