Oregon's Valley Region hosts some fabled trout and steelhead rivers and abundant hiking opportunities on the west slope of the Cascades -- all within easy access to the urban centers of Portland, Salem, Eugene and Medford. Trout anglers, kayakers and rafters favor the scenic McKenzie and the Upper Rogue Rivers. Salmon fisherman flock to the Columbia, Willamette, and Clackamas Rivers. And steelheaders from around the world make the pilgrimage to the North Umpqua and Rogue as a rite of passage.
The hundreds of alpine lakes that dot the west slope of the Cascades provide more angling opportunities -- or the chance to revel in peaceful solitude from the comfort of a canoe.
Whether it's a bird-watching tour, a quiet sail, or the pursuit of your first steelhead on a fly, OGPA members can help you fashion a Valley itinerary that suits your desires.
