About Bill Urie Fishing



"I have been fishing with Bill Urie for over twenty plus years, and I must say those years have gone by so fast. His knowledge of the rivers and expertise in guiding has provided me with some of my most memorable fishing trips ever. A true professional, he always has me coming back for more." -- K. Tsukamoto (San Mateo, CA)


With over 28 years of boating and outfitting experience on the Rogue and other Oregon rivers, you can be assured that this is a fishing trip never to be forgotten.  "Fishing Experiences like this are planned, they just don't happen!"

Bill Urie offers the highest quality fishing experience on all of our Oregon River trips.  The Rogue River is truly a world-class river with people traveling from all parts of the country to have an adventure like this.   The Rogue is one of the most beautiful places in the country. Knowing the history of the river like Bill does, he will treat you to some great stories, while guiding you safely through the rapids and catching some fish. Bill makes a first timer feel right at home, but can still satisfy the experienced fisherman.

Bill started rowing the rivers of Southwestern Oregon when he was just 11 years old, working the wild and scenic portion of the Rogue River to row the luggage boat for clients fishing with outfitters. Just after his 15th birthday, he booked his first commercial trip and took clients fishing. Over the years, Bill has acquired an incredible knowledge of the most subtle details of the rivers he fishes and the fish themselves.

Bill has earned a reputation as one of the elite group of guides that are routinely more successful than average. Known as one of the authorities on Southern Oregon Rivers, Bill has been regularly featured on local television how-to fishing shows and in the newspaper.
