“There is only one thing wrong with a fishing day – its staggering brevity.”
Enjoy fishing the historic Rogue almost year round. There’s enough opportunity to tempt any angler from beginner to hard-core.
Fishing at it’s best
- Beginning in January through March, winter steelhead are the challenge. A sport fisherman’s dream, these feisty fish from eight to twelve pounds can be landed from a boat or the bank.
- March and running through June, there is nothing that can quite compare to catching a bright Rogue River “springer”. Fat and sassy, spring Chinook salmon can weigh up to thirty five pounds and more. They put up a fight to match. Truly, some of the best eating salmon found anywhere.
- In the heat of the summer – July and into the fall, “trolling in the bay” or the mouth of the Rogue is the way to catch fall Chinook. Hovering in the beefy twenty to twenty five pound class, they are a prize for any fisherman.
- Fall fishing can continue from September through November. Coho or silver salmon arrive in the early fall to add to your tag. There’s always plenty of sport in steelhead fishing, too.
- Keep your waders patched for fly-fishing from August through October. Nothing can challenge the thrill of a hard-hitting strike of a summer steelhead. Whether you enjoy casting about as a beginner or enjoy the presentation of one of Zane Grey’s gaudy legends, fly-fishing on the Rogue has all the elements to create memories. From the rising mist above the water at dawn to the anticipation of the leaping acrobatics of a steelhead, few anglers feel satisfied with just one trip.
