Nate Kinney Fishing Guides

Taking On One Fish At A Time

NK Fishing Guides is a local guide service based out of Southern Oregon but, providing guided trips all over the state. Fishing the rogue river and surrounding areas from a young age led Nate Kinney to start NK Fishing Guides the beginning of 2016. We specialize in year round guided fishing trips for spring and fall salmon, winter and summer steelhead, trout and bass. If river fishing isn’t your style, that’s okay, we have various lakes we can hit for trout, kokanee, bass or just a good time! Not into fishing at all but you still want to enjoy a trip down the river without worrying about your raft popping or getting soaking wet; hop in the boat for a beautiful scenic lunch on the river. No matter your age or style, we will do our best to ensure quality service and an exciting day with NK Fishing Guides!
