Winter Steelhead on the Rogue!
Even though it has been raining non-stop the past few weeks the Steelhead fishing has been great on the Upper Rogue River. There have been some nice crome hatchery fish finding their way to the net. If you are going out on your own steelhead fishing remember that you are allowed one Native Steelhead a day as long as it is over 24" long and only five Natives a season. This special regulation ends as of April 30th. The bite has been hot on the new Yakima Baits "Mag Lip 3.5" in a variety of colors. It seems to dive a little deeper in these higher flows we have been seeing lately.
ROGUE RIVER FISHING REPORT
We boated our biggest Spring Chinook ever today up near the Cole Rivers Fish Hatchery on the Rogue River. 69lb bright crome King. This is looking to be a great start to the springer season. We got the hog trolling a plug cut herring cured in CHEETO'S powder with a night crawer wrap. It was a long 2 hour battle but we won and were able to beach the big fish just before our 6lb leader snapped. APRIL FOOLS!
Right now the water is high and muddy but still fishable at the top of the Rogue River. We have been picking up fish on plugs and side drifting roe and Yarn. Once the water drops toward the end of the week . There should be some great fishing all throughout the river. The Umpqua should see a few more weeks of good winter steelhead fishing aswell once the water drops. We havn't seen any Spring Chinook in the Upper Rogue yet but any day now. We still have some great dates available for the Spring Chinook Season. Give us a call to book a trip or if you have any
