Our guides are currently fishing for king Chinook salmon, summer steelhead and trout on the upper Rogue river near Shady Cove.They have found running tuna wrapped plugs most productive for salmon, lately, with back bouncing bait a close second. They have been side drifting and nymph fishing under an indicator for steelhead and trout. They have been catching more summer steelhead in the past week.
