“Safe & knowledgeable guides -Trout fishing success ...consistently!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

My husband has fished the Klamath River (below Keno Dam) several times with Roe Outfitters. Darren is the only guide offering this stretch of the Klamath, and it's a technically difficult stretch to drift - lots of whitewater with big boulders.

Roe is very adept at safely negotiating the river while getting my husband in the right spots to catch nice rainbow trout. His knowledge of the bug hatches and good selection of flies from their shop always produce a successful trip.

Darren's patience and generous sharing of knowledge is impressive. We have never had problems or 'attitude' with ANY of the staff from Roe's. Jenifer's always helpful in scheduling to my husband's convenience and everyone I've met there has been capable, positive and polite.

My husband has referred several fishing friends to this outfit (which he wouldn't do if they weren't good) - so far everyone's been impressed. They also like the fact they get a FULL day of fishing - no shortcuts / no shortcomings.

Booked 1/2 day rafting on the Rogue. I was told more people would sign up and we would go. Later in the week they called back to say we could switch to a half day on the Klamath. I was told it was comparable to the Rogue trip. What a disappointment. There was one class two rapid and not much more. Also, this was the first time I've been rafting where NO pictures were taken of us on the river. I will say our guides were great but I am so sorry I didn't book with Noah's rafting.

“Good fishing...good guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

During the July time of year, the Williamson River was excellent. (don't go on 4th of July weekend). Caught a nice 30 inch rainbow. The water level on the Wood wasn't right, so we didn't fish it. The Rogue wasn't holding big fish at that time (too early in the year). Mr Roe and his wife Jennifer were very accomodating. They put us up in the Running Y which was very nice. Would go back.

“Did not have a good experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

We shot ducks and geese at Klamath refuge with Mr. Rowe. He did show up promptly and to be fair, it did freeze overnight, which made the hunting challenging. This is NOT a review about the hunting success, since that is always subject to issues that are often beyond the guide's control.

However, Mr. Rowe was not very friendly, seemed more interested in getting us out and back as quickly as possible and getting paid in full. We had two experienced hunters and one novice with us and Mr. Rowe was just not very friendly and actually ridiculed a mistake by the novice hunter (dropped some shells in the boat, making a loud noise that scared some geese away). Overall, just not a positive experience. Other guide services we have used were more congenial, more encouraging, teaching and providing local hunting tips (we were visiting from California).

We hardly shot any birds, but again, that's not all Mr. Rowe's fault. But when we left the hunt, I was hoping that we would get some sort of consideration, something like "Come on back up and get 10% off your next hunt since this one was not that good for you" - something to leave us with a positive taste in our mouth. Didn't happen.

Would not recommend. There's plenty of better services available...without the attitude.

Roe's has the best selection of sporting goods in Southern Oregon.

Prices could be dropped to accommodate the "99%"

Easy to find off U.S. Route 97
