Gold Beach Guide Service is owned & operated by Gene Garner, a local professional with over 35 years of experience fishing rivers on the Southern Oregon coast.
Depending on the time of year, we guide fishing trips to catch world class King (Chinook) Salmon, Coho (Silver) Salmon, or Steelhead on several of the nearby rivers.
Rogue River: Located in Gold Beach, the Rogue is world famous for the best salmon runs on the west coast.
Chetco River: Located in Brookings, OR. A very popular destination for winter steelhead fishing.
Elk River: Located in Port Orford, OR. Only accessible by drift boat or on foot, as jet boats are not allowed.
Sixes River: Located north of the Elk River, the Sixes is also a drift boat only river but with a gentler gradient than its sister.

On the Southern Oregon coast, climate is always changing. Wear multiple layers to stay comfortable in any temperature.
Gold Beach sees about 80 inches of rain per year, so waterproof clothing is essential! A jacket is recommended at minimum.
No matter where/when we’re fishing, chances are high we will get some sun. Some polarized glasses are highly suggested!
Food & Drink
Bring a lunch, snacks, drinks- and whatever else you’ll need to get by for several hours while we wait for the big catch.
Capture every moment and bit of scenery on the river. We are equipped to take a photo of you with your catch at the end of the trip.
Oregon is filled with diverse nature & wildlife, many of which we’ll encounter on the outing. Make sure you don’t miss any of it!
