Kings/steelhead in June

Help! A fishing camp in British Columbia has had the week of June 12-19 become available for a group of five anglers, and I have been given first shot at it. I need to find four people interested in chasing chrome bright, ocean fresh "Springs" (Chinook) and summer steelhead with a fly. These fish are rated as some of the strongest in the world, and my own personal experience confirms this rating. The camp is extremely inviting, clean, and comfortable, with a first-rate staff, and the cooking is world class. The river is set amongst one of the most breathtakingly beautiful backdrops in North America.
This is a chance to flyfish for both WILD Chinook and WILD steelhead in the most prime condition possible, only minutes from the saltchuck, a chance to experience the most rewarding "pulls" in freshwater . Also, for anyone interested in learning how to catch Springs or steelhead on a fly, or how to Skagit cast, this is a great "learn while you play" opportunity. The cost, starting at Campbell River, British Columbia, is $3595.00 - Saturday to Saturday. Did I mention that these fish are rated amongst the strongest salmonids in the world? If interested P.M. me.

Moonlight, can't be there ... only because..

the upper Rogue is ALIVE with the things at that time of the year. 2003 was a 'slow year,' we only had 33,000 some kings in the top end of the Rogue last season.

Year before it was over 40,000.

I would love to be on that trip as it would be a perfect time to test a theory that the Atlantis is a very good chinook rod. June is not a time I can break away though, prime of the striper season and I've started booking up pretty tight around the best tides.

Let me check with some friends who might jump on it...

Kings/steelhead in June

Fred,
I can certainly understand the fondness that you have for the Rogue considering those stats. However, everyone that I know of that has fished this particular river for kings or steelhead all agree on one thing for sure - the fish of this river are in a class of their own. This opinion is held by many highly regarded and well-experienced flyfishers that have fished for kings/steelhead throughout the entire North American continent.
