Had a great time on Valentine's Day with Patty and Darrell on the upper the Rogue River. After spending most of the winter on the Umpqua and having to deal with a lot of boats, the upper Rogue was a peaceful change of pace. Although we only yielded one steelhead, the big fat Cutthroat and Rainbow trout kept us very busy on our quick half day trip. The upper stretches of the Rogue are turning on fast for it only being mid February. It typically peaks in March and April so now is a great time to call and reserve your dates. Our winter steelhead average around 7 to 10 pounds and we see some in the mid teens as well. The Rogue is a beautiful fishery with equally beautiful steelhead moving through its emerald green waters on a daily basis.
Come and get some!!
Anglers can now retain 1 wild steelhead per day over 24 inches in length until the end of April. If you'd rather release your wild steelhead so they can spawn, the Rogue is also plum full of hatchery fish.
Anglers are allowed 2 hatchery fish per day.
1 wild over 24 inches and 1 hatchery fish per day
