The rivers, streams, lakes and ocean surrounding Gold Beach offer
world-class fishing all year round. Whether you are after salmon,
steelhead, trout, rockfish, cod, halibut, tuna; or shellfish such as the
succulent Dungeness crab, littleneck or butter clams; you will find them
all within the reach of your fishing pole, flyrod, crabpot or sand
shovel and a short distance from Turtle Rock Resort.
Those fishermen staying in a picturesque RV site or vacation beach
cottage at Turtle Rock Resort benefit from the close proximity of Hunter
Creek, the bountiful creek that flows into the Pacific ocean and the
banks upon which the resort lies. You may fish for steelhead, chinook
and trout right in our own Hunter Creek. From January 1 to March 31
Hunter Creek is open to steelhead fishing; from October 1 to December
31, chinook; and from May 23 to October 31, trout.

December-March: Winter steelehead travel up the Rogue this time of year.
Good eating and great fighters!
March-June: Spring chinook (or king) salmon are caught between Gold
Beach and Agness (2 to 35 miles upriver). Similar to fall chinook, these
"springers" are in peak physical condition as they leave the cold waters
of the Pacific and come into the Rogue system in search of their
spawning grounds. Known for their mouth-watering flavor, spring chinook
range in size from 10 to 40+ pounds.
July-December: Troll the Rogue River Bay for Chinook salmon which, once
hooked, give even the most experienced angler a challenging fight. These
fine fish also range from 10-40+ pounds. In fact, one fish weighing over
70-pounds was landed by a Grants Pass Fisherman several years ago.
Summer steelhead (or half-pounders) also provide excellent fishing
during these months. And do not forget trout - one lucky angler pulled
in a 28-pound rainbow trout several years ago from the Rogue River.
September-December: This time of year you will catch coho (silver)
salmon and, of course, the fun-to-hook summer steelies. Silvers range in
size from five to 15-pounds and steelhead from 3/4 pound to two-pounds.
Nothing's more fun than fighting these fish on light tackle, especially
a fly rod. While there is nothing tastier than a fish fry, many
fishermen catch and release these beauties, allowing them to live and
fight another day.
