Salmon Fishing on the Rogue River

My Dad came down a few days ago to help with a some odd jobs, deliver my tractor, and go fishing on the Rogue River.  I’m hoping this photo will help some people decide to come for a visit!

He went out with Helen Burns (Helen’s Guide Service) and caught a 35# and about a 20#.  I wish I had a freezer because I wasn’t able to keep more than I could eat in a couple of days (utilizing a cooler and ice.)  I kept the heads (lots of meat there) and hope to make a salmon chowder.

He had a fantastic time, had only wonderful things to say about Helen, his guide, and will definitely be back for more.  (Maybe by the time he returns I will have a freezer he can work to fill.)  Wow, those fish were beautiful!
