Anglers are still catching a few steelhead, but this run is winding down. Beginning May 1, only hatchery steelhead may be retained.

We had a good push of Spring Chinook in April.  With the Rogue warming and clearing slightly, effort and catch has trailed off some. Spinners, plugs, anchovies, and sardines have all been used successfully. Hatchery Chinook may be retained year-round. Wild Chinook opens for retention June

1. This spring, ODFW is conducting a genetic study on wild chinook by collecting fin tissue samples. Anglers interested in learning more and participating in this project can contact ODFW staff at 541-247-7605.
