Rogue Plunker Report

Rogue River- Lower - Gold Beach, OR

by Larry Ellis

Larry Cody from the Rogue Outdoor Store also reported that both plunkers from the bank and boat fishermen were catching plenty of winter steelhead on the lower Rogue River.

"We're getting some pretty good action on the 3.0 Mag Lip," said Cody on Thursday about the boat fishermen. "And the plunkers are doing pretty well on pink Spin-N-Glos. And we're seeing some pretty decent action on surfperch when the ocean's quiet."
