Winter Salmon and Steelhead Fishing
June has been a really busy month for us here at Fishing The Rogue with folks fishing with us from all around the country and even a few international travelers. As you may well know, June is prime time for spring salmon fishing on the Upper Rogue River and our guides are still landing fresh springers (complete with ocean scales and red firm flesh).
If you are looking to do some fishing in Southern Oregon,
July is a great time for king salmon and steelhead fishing on the Rogue.
As of tomorrow, July 1st regulations change on the Upper Rogue and downstream of Dodge Bridge boat ramp (near Medford/Shady Cove) you are able to keep hatchery, as well as, wild salmon. This more than doubles your chances of being able to retain salmon, if that is your desire, or if you are looking for a quieter fishing experience (this regulation change moves many boats and anglers downstream) you can still fish just upstream where hatchery fish may be kept and wild fish are catch and release.
The best time for a guided salmon trip on the Rogue is now through early September.
June was a really high water month on the river, but recently flows have dropped to a more normal pattern (still plenty of water!) which should help to keep fish longer in their usual holding spots. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife reports this steady river level will continue for the months to come. Good news since steady river levels and pressure tend to encourage a more predictable bite.
In addition to king salmon fishing on the Rogue our guides have recently hooked into their 1st summer steelhead of the year. We offer combination trips for salmon and steelhead throughout the summer months.
Now through November steelhead numbers and fishing will continue to improve.
For fly fishing aficionados, don't forget September is the opening of fly only season on the uppermost section of the river.
And as part of our Adventure Fishing opportunities, starting October 1st, our guides will be offering trips on the Keno section of the Klamath River for redband trout (Keno Oregon is just a short drive form Medford/Ashland).
