Morrison's Rogue River Lodge w/ The Ashland Fly Shop

January 17, 2019 3 min read




Southern Oregon's premier rafting & fly fishing resort is located on the Rogue River in one of the most beautiful settings you will find anywhere. Originally built as a fishing lodge in 1946, Morrison's offers some of the finest steelhead fly fishing in the Northwest. Family hospitality and exemplary service combine with fine dining and spectacular scenery to make Morrison's a destination resort of choice.

This is the region’s oldest and most established full service fishing lodge. With tasteful accommodations overlooking the river, fine dining and daily guided drift boat trips targeting adult and “half-pounder" steelhead, Morrison’s remains the region’s classic fall steelheading destination.



Morrison’s Rogue River Lodge is located on the banks of the Rogue River near Merlin, Oregon.


Fishing Program:
Morrison’s expert fly-fishing guides enjoy swinging flies in this prime October window. They are excellent guides as well as instructors and this is a great opportunity to learn to cast a two hand or spey rod or swing flies with a single hand rod. All levels can be accommodated. 

Accommodations and Meals:
Morrison's Rogue River Lodge, Southern Oregon's premier rafting and fishing resort, is located 16 miles west of Grants Pass on a peaceful bend on the Rogue River. Morrison's Lodge has nine river view cottages with fireplaces, private decks and covered parking, along with four rooms in the main lodge.  Each cottage and lodge room is equipped with a television, VCR/DVD, telephones, private bath, refrigerator, and air conditioner. The lodge also offers a heated swimming pool (seasonal), basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, putting green, disc golf and five acres of river front lawn. You can sit by the river's edge, bask in the sun on our own private beach, go hiking and bike riding on nearby trails or any of the other numerous non-angling experiences. For those of you planning a meeting, retreat, family reunions, or any other private affair, Morrison's have a conference room adjacent to the main lodge.


Morrison's has a legendary reputation for fine dining with a blend of country style and gourmet cuisine. As a guest of Morrison's, meals are included in your package. Dinners are all inclusive, featuring an elaborate four courses.  The appetizer course is followed by a salad which is served with our renowned freshly baked orange dinner rolls.  You will have a choice of two different main entree selections served with fresh vegetables and a potato, pasta or rice dish. The grand finale is, of course, a mouth-watering dessert served with freshly brewed coffee or tea.
