Lower Rogue River Fishing Report

Rogue River- Lower - Gold Beach, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

After a significant rainstorm, the Rogue received some much needed water.  This has encouraged fish to move upriver as well as into the tributaries for spawning.    

Anglers may want to consider plunking during these higher water events.  As the water drops, anglers should switch to side drifting with eggs or tossing spinners.

Coho salmon are also still moving up river.  Anglers have reported catch in the lower sections of the Rogue.  Only hatchery coho may be kept as part of an angler’s adult and jack salmon daily bag limit.

For a current view of the Rogue from the Isaac Lee Patterson Bridge in Gold Beach, check out the ODOT’s camera.
