Fishing the Rogue River - With Jeff Helfrich of Tight Lines - 4/18/15

This Saturday Jeff Helfrich of Tight Lines will be at Orvis Portland to do a presentation on fishing the Wild and Scenic Rogue River canyon. He will be there to start up at 10:30am; so make sure you stop by the shop to get blown away about stories of crazy steelhead and gnarly rapids in driftboats. Jeff has been fishing and involved in the running the craziest scenic rivers and guiding people at them since he went from crawling to walking basically. His family routes are from the original pioneer guides of many famous rivers we all know and also creator of the driftboat (Prince Helfrich). You can only imagine some of the fishing stories and adventures he can share with you.

Copy and pasted from his website:
The Rogue River in southwest Oregon offers excellent fly fishing for both adult and half-pounder steelhead. Tight Lines provides 3 nights and 4 days floating the Rogue in drift boats, stopping at a historic lodge each night, covering 43 miles.
Our family has boated this "Wild and Scenic" designated stream since the early '50s and are proud to have a group of guides who each average nearly 30 years of experience. This wild stretch of river also offers fantastic whitewater, and wildlife viewing, including many black bears, eagles, black-tailed deer, river otters, mink and more. The Rogue is rich in history including that of Native Americans, gold mining and early pioneers.
