~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 (fisherman talk for putting around in a boat with a line or two out) 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.
~SEPTEMBER-NOVEMBER: This time of year you'll 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 is more fun than fighting these fish on light tackle, especially a fly rod. Fishermen are encouraged to catch and release these beauties, allowing them to live and reproduce, ensuring future runs.
~There are two ways to go about this: You can charter a boat and get up close and cozy with a California gray whale, or you can just keep glancing out to sea every time you’re on a bluff hiking, biking, walking or driving. Chances are excellent that you’ll eventually spot a plume of water spouting from a blowhole. Carry binoculars and you may get to see the magnificent mammals breaching the surface of the water. Several boats congregating in close proximity often means they’ve spotted a pod, so keep your eyes open.
~To take advantage of the California gray whale's 12,000-mile migratory route from a Gold Beach standpoint, you’ll want to be in town between December and May. Till February they’re heading south as far as the Arctic, and tend to travel 2 miles offshore; from March through May they’re on their way back north, and cruise closer in, just beyond the surf line. The rest of the year you might catch sight of one of the 'locals' , WHALES that have taken up permanent residence off the Oregon coast. Early morning and late evening, when the water is calm, are best times.
For land-based sightings, look for vantage points all along the Oregon coast with big 'Whale Watching Spoken Here' signs.

About The Owner
We enjoy living in this area and enjoy sharing our appreciation of this beautiful coast with our guests.
Why The Owner chose Gold Beach
After vacationing for in Gold Beach for many years we finally were able to move to the area. We have always enjoyed the beautiful Oregon coastline and the recreational activities this area offers. It was 'love at first sight' and we knew immediately it was too special a property to pass up. Our joy is in creating a warm and inviting vacation retreat to share with others.
What makes this cottage unique
We love to stay in town and walk across the street for dinner. We enjoy walking our dogs along the jetty or on the beach at low tide. But best of all is enjoying evenings with friends, barbecuing on the deck, and watching the Osprey fly overhead, until the Gold Beach sunset ignites the sky.
