There are many opportunities for fishing on the Rogue and Illinois Rivers, and Lucas Lodge gives you incredible access to them. The Rogue River is known for the legendary half pounder steelhead and explosive fall chinook salmon.  You will have easy river access from the bank,  drift boat, power boat, or fishing guides can be hired for an unforgettable experience on the river.  Lucas Lodge is located where the Illinois River meets the Rogue, just 45 minutes from Gold Beach. Because of our unique geographical location we are not bothered with the excessive sea fog many coastal communities experience.
