Salmon fishing remains slow on the Rogue Bay, but should improve with quickly warming water temperatures according to Martin. “The temperature at Agness increased from 61 degrees last week to 72 degrees on Tuesday. The warm water halts the upstream migration of salmon and forces them to hold in the bay, sparking the summer fishery in Gold Beach,” added Martin.
