Oregon Fishing Report July 8th - Rogue River
Oregon Fishing Report for July 8th, 2014 - Rogue River
Rogue River, lower: steelhead, Chinook, surfperch
Anglers have started picking up fall chinook the bay trolling anchovies or an anchovy with spinner blade. With minus tides this week the best fishing will be late mornings or afternoons. Water temperatures are increasing and flows droppings so anglers can expect chinook to continue stacking up in the bay. This time of year the best fishing is from Highway 101 downstream to the mouth.
Anglers are picking up a few early run summer steelhead casting spinners or fly fishing, but river temperatures are getting pretty warm and making it hard to get fish to bite. Best time to fish is first thing in the morning.
Anglers are picking up surfperch on many beaches and
at the mouth of the Rogue River. Anglers should check the marine
forecast before heading out.
Rogue River, middle: steelhead, trout, spring Chinook
Anglers are catching a few summer steelhead in the middle Rogue. Chinook fishing remains slow in this section of the river. A decrease in the release from Lost Creek Reservoir will mean much lower river flows for the next several weeks. The flow at Grants Pass was 1600 cfs and the water temperature was averaging 67°F on July 7.
