Welcome! Whether you're a seasoned angler, or going fishing for your first time, Rick Howard's local knowledge and fishing expertise will make your fishing expedition a memorable one.  Each year anglers from all around enjoy the scenic beauty of Oregon's south coast while experiencing the thrill of catching Steelhead and Chinook salmon with professional guide Rick Howard.  Read our pages to find out specific details about fishing on the Rogue, Sixes, Elk, and Coquille Rivers, as well as on Coos Bay.  Fish On!

As of September 2022:
  • the current standard rate is $250/person;
  • the Coquille is closed to salmon fishing this year, so the Coos and Umpqua Rivers are the available choices.
