Rogue River Fishing Guide Report

The eagles and the osprey are nesting and the goslings have hatched. Salmon flies are here which is nature's way of letting us know its springer season. With the arrival of salmon flies, fly fishing for resident trout should really take off.  As for spring Chinook salmon, it  is one of the toughest and most rewarding times of the year for fishing here on Rogue.  Cold early mornings, variable weather conditions, and large hard fighting fish are what makes spring a special time for us on the river.  Starting in early May and running through August these fresh shiny Kings are what's on the mind of many anglers in the west.  With over 1200 Chinook already in the hatchery and over 700 Chinook recycled downstream this promises to be a great salmon season.
