Rogue River Spring Chinook - Good Fishing Now!

The Rogue River is on the rise do to rains this week and Spring Chinook are starting to move. Today is Wednesday the 23rd and the river should see increased fish movements on this rain through the first few days of May. Then we will need to see what the weather brings. As of today Lost Creek Dam is 3/4 of a foot from being full. The current level is 1971.17 ft. and 1972 ft. is full. There is 1969 cfs coming in and 1508 cfs being released. The dam should only take two days to finish filling - then the Corps of Engineers will increase out flows to match inflows. There are as of the 22nd, 17 Spring Chinook in the Hatchery at Cole Rivers. Give us a call for your Spring Salmon Trip.

Rogue River flows have dropped to very low conditions and fish have stopped moving - however it is raining and the river is forecasted to double in flows this week - which will bring great movements of fresh Spring Salmon into the river it the flow forecasts are correct. Look for the next two weeks to be the peak of the run. We have dates open during this time frame. (541) 247-4138

The Lower Rogue River @ Gold Beach Oregon is in top shape with great water temps (around 51 degrees). Spring Chinook are being caught by most boats in the good fish travel slots. There are a lot of hatchery fish in the catch - more than normally seen. We still have open dates for these fabulously great eating salmon. Remember Spring Chinook are not a fish run you go out and limit on very often but we are likely to see 2 to 3 very high quality Springers in the box by days end. (800) 348-4138

Rogue River Winter Steelhead fishing can only be considered Hot! After a prolonged low water period followed by flood stage rains the Rogue River has turned excellent for Winter Steelhead. Now's the time folks. (800) 348-4138

The Rogue River at Agness has 48 degrees water temps - which is fantastic for fish activity. Spring Chinook rumors are also jumping. We caught the first Rogue River Springer brought in in 2013 when water temps hit 48 degrees on March 16 - there was another 8 Springer's caught on the river the next day. When the first Springer was caught on the Lower Rogue there were already 3 in the hatchery at Lost Creek 130 miles upriver and one landed in the upper Rogue. So I am sure there are Springer's going through the Lower Rogue now.
