Rogue River Outfitters Customer Testimonials
"Our family has fished with Craig and Tina, we have rafted the rogue with them also. One thing that always is important to us on our outdoor adventures is to have an owner operator experience. Ive always found that with the owner involved in the trip the quality is so much better. With Craig and Tina we have always found them involved, or even on each trip. Thanks again guys for the wonderful memories. Cant wait to go again soon...Dave and Carla" Welcome to our testimonial page. Each one of these experiences have been written by our clients.

"Dear Craig and Tina,
Craig, you are just plain awesome! You/we conquered the rapids on the river like butter on hot pancakes ... just sliding over the white water and coming out (relatively) dry and happy on the other side. Thank you for your expertise and knowledge of the river.
As for the fish ... nothing else we have ever done/fished can compare. Zane Grey may not have liked those "half pounders" but we thought they were an awesome catch! And those steel head! I will never forget chasing the biggest fish I've ever caught -- oh and those two whales that Mr. Paiva got too.
Thank you Tina for your arrangements and support of Rogue River Outfitters. We loved having a special salad everyday -- and could have eaten just that -- but there were so many other yummy choices. I must get that broccoli slaw recipe!
We look forward to seeing you again on the Rogue River. Until then, travel safe and enjoy the great Oregon outdoors (we are jealous).
Katherine and Frank Paiva,
Katherine thanks so much for the comment. Fall fishing on the Rogue River is definitely at trip of a lifetime. We are so glad you enjoyed it.. Photo's were great.
"Craig and Tina,
Hello from St Louis! My daily routine will never be the same. My mind's eye is still filled with canyon walls and rapids! I still feel the heavy surge of wild steelhead taking the lure. I'll never forget the banter and camaraderie and fabulous meals and the fly fishing lessons. Your outfit made me an "American Sportsman" for a weekend that I'll never forget!!
Please send camp/fish pictures so that I can brag...oops....I mean share with friends.
Sam, thanks for the kind words...The Lower Deschutes Steelhead Flyfishing is a hard one to forget! Photo's should be posted up on or Flickr page soon. Keep checking in there.
What can I say but "THANK YOU" to you and your crew; Doug, Bob, and Tom, we had an amazing adventure and mad some incredible memories. You all go above and beyond in Turing 3 days into something that will a lifetime. There is a reason we keep coming back.... besides the incredible beauty being a part of it, it's you guys!!! See you in 2012!!
John & Kristin Coleman
John thanks for the note. We agree, the Rogue River is full of some incredible memories, what a place to store them. Until next time...
Thanks Guys always have enjoyed your trips with us. We look forward to seeing you again this summer.
"Jim and I have rafted the Rogue with Craig and Tina, we also fished with Craig a few years ago. We love your trips, and the food is unbelievable. Being resturant owners we know how hard it is to make a good meal that suites everyone. We are here to say Tina you've got it down. Great meals everytime! Jim and Kathy...."
Thanks for the kind words Kathy. You and Jim are always so much fun. We will look for you at Gio's next time were there. Thanks again.
"Craig thank you for all the great trips and memories. Your team of guides have always been professional and first class. I went from fly pole to fly rod with you guys and I was taught well. The food and friend ship was second to none. You guys provided the knowledge and god the surroundings. Thank You and I can't wait to go again.
Don Thanks for the comments. Hope to see you next Deschutes
"Tina, just wanted to thank you again for everything. We were obviously sorry that Craig couldn’t join us. However, Tom, Bob and Doug were definitely holding up the very high standards that the Hughson’s are known for. They were wonderful guides (and awesome cooks) and we, of course, thoroughly enjoyed those great lunches that you always put together.
I hope the rest of your summer goes well and we will again have wonderful family memories because of the Hughson’s and their great guides.
John Thank You for the kind words. We have always enjoyed you and your family on our trips.

"Dear Craig, Bob & Tina,
Thank you all for making this one of our most memorable vacations. Tina, your salads were just what we needed after having spent so much energy in the morninng keeping our guides in control :) BUT really - The food was DELICIOUS!!!!!
The Rogue has shot up to #1 on the list of the rivers I have rafted, our whole group appreciated the skill and humor of our guides. Thank for the bits of history you shared with us and even the little soaking surprise we incurred :)
Suzanne & Dale"
Suzanne and Dale thanks for the kind words... The Rogue River is a Very Special River. Of course we maybe a little bias!
