Like to make a steel head? trip out west

I live in Idabel, Ok and have an addiction to fly fishing for trout and many warm water fish..recently bought me a Meiser switch rod and have been reading this forum..I would consider a west coast fishing trip. I drive to New Mexico and Colorado once a year for my vacation but would consider something where spey fishing is the norm.. Where could I fly in, get me a guide and not break the bank? What time of the year? Any recommendations.. MikeLove

The Rogue

To fly in and fish the Rogue pretty much means fly into Medford Oregon. The only flights in and out of Medford are from San Francisco, Sacremanto, Portland, Seattle, or Reno.

So if one has to fly to S.F. or Sacremento, why bother to to fly to Medford? Plenty of steelhead rivers in N. Ca. Likewise, if one is flying into Portland or Seattle. Plenty of steel up there. You could fly into Portland and book a couple of days with a guide on the Deschutes. Biggest problem would be getting from PDX over to Maupin, or wherever you can arrange to meet the guide. You may have to settle for something closer in, like the Sandy.

The reason a lot of these rivers are as good as they are is their remoteness. The easier they are to get to, the more heavily they get pounded.

But, if you've got your heart set on the Rogue, do it right. Book a four day guided trip, with a fly fishing guide, down through the wild and scenic section. And this is the time of year to do it.

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.
