Southern Oregon Fishing - Rogue River King

Just back from a terrific day of fishing on the Rogue River. What you see is a 28", 15 lb spring salmon that I landed, my best river fish of all time (also caught multiple rainbow trout and a cutthroat trout, but nothing compared to this). And as a bonus, a new lifer bird (American dipper), plus bald eagle, osprey, about 35 great blue herons, a dozen mergansers, and two belted kingfishers. My thanks to Charlie, guide extraordinaire for a wonderful and totally fulfilling day. As they say, it does not get better than this! - Michael Perlin
