Conditions : ROGUE RIVER: Lower - Spring Chinook fishing picked up over the weekend as a few fish moved through the lower river. Even with a lower run forecasted, the water conditions continue to be excellent for catching fish from the bank or a boat. Most anglers are picking up springers on anchovies. April is when we usually see good numbers of spring Chinook entering the river.

Middle - Fishing for winter steelhead is winding down now that many of the fish have spawned and are headed downstream. The first few spring Chinook salmon of the season have been landed, but fishing for Chinook remains slow. Anglers are reminded that only hatchery Chinook with clipped adipose fins may be retained. The harvest of wild steelhead ends on April 30.

The Rogue River is currently closed to fishing for trout to protect the out-migrating salmon and steelhead smolts.

As of Tuesday morning, the flow at Grants Pass was 5,240 cfs and rising, turbidity was 4 NTUs, and the water temperature was 50oF.

Upper - Winter Steelhead fishing has been fair, but is winding down. Spring Chinook should start arriving in the upper river anytime now. Anglers are reminded that only hatchery Chinook with clipped adipose fins may be retained. The harvest of wild steelhead ends on April 30. The river from the Highway 62 bridge upstream to the barrier dam at Cole River Hatchery is currently closed to fishing from 8:00 PM to one-half hour before sunrise.

The Rogue River is currently closed to fishing for trout to protect the out-migrating salmon and steelhead smolts.

As of April 18, a total of 1,697 winter steelhead and no spring Chinook have returned to Cole Rivers Hatchery. (Track the hatchery returns at fish returns to Cole Rivers). The outflow from Lost Creek Reservoir on Monday morning was 2,517 cfs, and the water temperature in the river was 46oF. The flow at RayGold was 5,020 cfs.

Above Lost Creek - The Rogue River and its tributaries above the reservoir support rainbow, cutthroat, brook, and brown trout. Snow is still restricting access to much of the area, and high, cold flows will make fishing difficult.
