Idaho Fish Report
Fall Chinook have started entering the lower river
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Trout fishing is open. There is a 5 fish daily bag limit for adipose fin-clipped (hatchery) trout. Non-adipose fin-clipped trout must all be immediately released unharmed. All Rogue tributaries are closed unless noted in the exceptions.
Wild steelhead retention is closed. Hatchery steelhead retention remains open. Anglers are starting to pick up more summer Steelhead in the middle Rogue area around Gold Hill and Rogue River. Plugs or side drifting would be the best method for these, but spinners will work too.
Fall Chinook have started entering the lower river and a few make it will be making it to the middle Rogue in the next few weeks.
