New to Grants Pass, any rivers to fish?


New member
Hello and good evening everyone,

New to the forums here and also new Grant's Pass. I have been doing quite a bit of research on where to go fishing for trout, but I can't seem to find any rivers or creeks that produce good size trout other than stockers from what I have read. It seems that lakes and reservoirs are the places to go, but I dont have a boat and prefer fishing on the rivers. Can anyone point me to some good spots, it would really be appreciated. I dont mind traveling, could be 2 hours away but would prefer something closer. Again anything would help. Thanks everyone I appreciate the info.

Welcome to OFF.

The Wood & Williamson Rivers, are a good bet for larger trout. They feed into the Klamath Lake Basin, to the east. A fellow OFFer used to file regular reports of catching big ones, by casting and retrieving plugs. Plus the Sprague River, just a little further east too. In fact I believe that was Ben's favorite stream.

Let us know how you do and include some pics. Tight lines, TD
