Rogue River Sponsored by
Date 14-May-15
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : ROGUE RIVER: Lower - Increased flows from Lost Creek Dam have kept water temperatures and flows good enough to keep spring Chinook on the move. Boat anglers are doing best in the morning when water temperatures are the coolest.

Middle - Fishing for steelhead is currently slow. Most of the winter steelhead have spawned and are headed downstream. Summer steelhead have not arrived in any significant numbers yet. Only adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained. Angling for spring chinook has been best early or late in the day for anglers back-bouncing bait or back-trolling plugs. Only hatchery chinook with clipped adipose fins may be retained.

As of Monday, the flow at Grants Pass was 2,120 cfs and the water temperature was 57oF.

The river is closed to trout fishing until May 23.

Upper - Fishing for steelhead is currently slow. Most of the winter steelhead have spawned and are headed downstream. Summer steelhead have not arrived in the upper Rogue in any significant numbers yet. Only adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained. Fishing for spring chinook salmon is improving as more fish reach the upper river. Bank anglers are having success drifting bait or drift-bobbers. Boaters are catching fish by back-bouncing bait or back-trolling plugs. Anglers are reminded that only hatchery chinook with clipped adipose fins may be retained.

The flow at Gold Ray was 2,140 cfs and the water temperature was 53oF on Monday morning. The outflow from Lost Creek Reservoir was 1,920 cfs at 50oF. As of May 6, a total of 4,312 winter steelhead and 1,120 spring chinook have been collected at Cole Rivers Hatchery.

Above Lost Creek - This reach of the Rogue is open to trout fishing year-round; however, the first stocking of rainbow trout for this year will not occur until late May. Holdover rainbow trout, and naturally produced rainbow, cutthroat, brown and brook trout are available in the river and in many tributaries. Lower flow levels this spring should make for better early-season fishing.
